Term 5- Y3s and Y5s Friday afternoons.
CLASS PROJECT: Friday 20th May. WWII project presentations. Parents are welcome to come into school at 2.45pm to view the projects.
The key areas to focus on:
- Daily reading: aim for one or two comments in the yellow Reading Record per week.
- Spellings- complete spelling sheets in blue Weekly Spelling Folder; play EdShed on a device. Little & often works best, so 5-10 minutes daily focused practise.
- MA- the Mental Arithmetic book. Aim for a minimum of 1 page per week, including going over any corrections from previous work.
- Times tables practice- again, little & often, 5-10 minutes daily. Revising the 2s, 5s & 10s. Y3s have learned the 3s, 4s & 8s; Y4s have learned the 6s, 9s, 7s, 11s and 12s. I am after quick, confident, automatic responses, i.e. 5x9= with a quick response of 45. If they are rusty initially, they will be a little slower, but the instant automatic response is what we’re working towards. The Y4 children will be participating in the multiplication tables check in June, just after half term. The purpose of the check is to determine whether the children can fluently recall their times tables up to 12x12. This helps inform our planning for the Y5 maths curriculum. This bigger blue button is where the children can practise for the MTC.
- Topic research- this term we will be learning about Hinduism, as well as looking at Electricity in science.
Reading at home
Children should read for twenty minutes every evening. By Key Stage 2 many children will be able to read independently but chatting to adults about the books they have read really helps with comprehension.Spelling Shed
