Each week, a spelling list will be sent home. This will be tested, in a random order, on Thursday or Friday the following week. 


Each child has been set a target times table. This will be tested on a Thursday. Both multiplication and division facts for the target times table need to be known. 


Homework set on Friday 8th February: Calculating Area


This week in Maths, the children have been working on calculating the area of rectilinear shapes. The homework this week is to see how the children can apply their skills independently. 


Homework is due on Thursday 14th February.

Half-Term Homework


Over the half-term, I would like you to produce a piece of work about somebody who inspires you or who is important in your life. This could be a family member, sportsperson, scientist, inventor, YouTuber, gamer, musician, dancer, artist...the possibilities are endless! For your piece of work I would like you to create two sections:


1 - A short piece of writing explaining who the person is. This should include who they are, facts about them and an explanation of how or why they inspire you. You could do this as a fact file, biography or short explanation text.


2 - A creative piece linked to what the person does. This may be a drawing, model, collage or painting. Show off your creativity.


Remember that all pieces of work can be done by hand or using a computer. 


You will share your work with the class on Thursday 28th February.

Please see the letters section for further information on the incident this week.
