Remember to keep up your reading at home. You are always welcome to choose a book from class or from the School Library. This must be looked after really well.

 

A comprehension skills lesson will take place weekly in School.

 

Helping children with maths:

Another piece of on-going homework is to make sure that tables are learnt so that their recall is automatic (no thinking or working out required).

Please let your class teacher know if you cannot access Mathletics and we will make provisions in school. Click below to log in. Your teacher can give you a copy of your login details if you have lost them.

On top of Mathletics, children should be completing 20 minutes per week on Maths Bootcamp (see below for link, username and password).

Feel free to download these helpful activities which suggest ideas to help your child with specific areas of maths. If you require a print out of these, please let us know and we will happily send one home.
