Literacy and Numeracy
In this section of our webpage, we will provide regular updates regarding our Numeracy and Literacy content. We will endeavour to supply the information before we teach the content which will enable parents/carers to chat about it with their children if they wish.
Literacy: We are currently focusing on revising our SPaG knowledge before SATs. It could be beneficial to talk to your child about the following aspects of SPaG:
- The eight word classes
- The active and passive voice
- Modal verbs
- Past and present progressive verb from
- What forms the subject and objects of a sentence
- Complex and compound sentences
Numeracy: As with Literacy, we are currently revising for SATs. This entails spending a day revising each area of the curriculum. To assisit your child, please encouage them to complete their 'mymaths' learning on areas of the curriculum which they don't feel as confident in.
The children will be given a spelling list each Friday and these words will be tested the following Friday. The children can choose either long list or short list.
Maths homework will be online with my maths. Your child was given a mymaths log in on 16/9 which was stuck into their homework book. We set homework which is relevant to what we have been doing in class. Please see us if you have any problems doing homework online. The homework is set on Friday and due in by Wednesday.
For literacy, the children will be given a homework bank(please see below) for terms 3 and 4. They should aim to do one homework per week but may choose which one . The homework should be done in their homework books and handed in by Wednesday each week. The homework books are marked and given out again on Friday.
Please open the document below for our spelling homework.
