Reading: All children in the class are expected to read for 30 minutes 5 times a week - this should be a mixture of independent and alongside an adult who can help ask questions and deepen their understanding.
Spellings: Spellings will be set on a Monday via Spelling Shed. There will be a mini- test on the following Monday. Once tests have been marked these will be sent home with amendments (if necessary) for the children to reflect on.
Times Table Rockstars: Children are asked to spend time each week practising their times tables.
Reading Comprehension: Every Wednesday, the children will be set a reading comprehension task. They will be required to read an extract of a text and answer related questions. These questions will help the children to develop their skills of inference, prediction, explanation, recall and summarisation as well as widening their vocabulary. These are expected to be brought into school on Wednesdays so that we can go through them together.
Reading Records: Reading records are collected in on Thursdays, and reading miles are calculated from these.
Arithmetic: Children will have an arithmetic test each Friday in school. We will mark these together, and sometimes these will be sent home to reflect on for weekly homework.
Mangahigh: Every Friday, at least one Maths task will be set online. Some weeks two task might be given. I encourage the children to have a go at each task a minimum of three times to try and achieve/ improve on the medals they are awarded.
