Welcome back to school!
It has been wonderful having children back in school over the past week and seeing them express so much enthusiasm towards their learning. To ease the children back into completing homework this week I am only going to set multiplication and spelling homework.
Generally, I will set the spellings this year using PurpleMash (all children have their own login – if your child cannot remember it, do not hesitate to get in touch with the office and they will supply the details to you or send a note in with your child). Unfortunately, due to a technical glitch I am unable to set the spellings using Purple Mash this week therefore the spellings are listed below:
Some children will receive a different list to the one shown above (please check your child’s book bag)
For Multiplication, I ask that each child spends sometime over the course of the week practicing their multiplication skills using the Times Table Rock Stars website. This is important for both Year 4 and 5 children as these skills are used across the curriculum; however it must be noted that if your child is in Year 4, the government are intending to continue with the Year 4 multiplication assessment this academic year and a little bit of practice each week would be beneficial.
Next Wednesday I will be testing the children on their knowledge of the 3x table.
This online resource can be very helpful with learning timetables:
Simply click timestables and click x3.
