Good Afternoon! My apologies for the delaying in getting the homework out to you this week. I had a few problems getting onto the blog. Due to the delay I have decided to put the spelling and multiplication assessment back to next Friday (13th November) rather than Wednesday.
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 8x table.
This online resource can be very helpful with learning timetables:
In the search box type ‘multiplication’ and you will gain access to the games that I showed you this week.
