Dear parents and children,
I hope you are finding your home-school packs useful and fun!
Just to recap some of the expectations for your time at home…
I will be providing daily numeracy and literacy lessons. I will endeavour to provide as much work as I can through PurpleMash or other online platforms and will be checking it daily to continue assessing the children’s progress. There may be worksheets uploaded to the class page for the children to complete using Microsoft Word. There will also be a creative homework to be completed throughout the week alongside the continuing expectations for reading, spelling and times tables practice (4x per week for each). The children are expected to complete 1 or 2 of the creative activities per week as well as a separate PurpleMash activity linked to our topic ‘The Anglo-Saxons’.
If your child has been given log in details for Nessy, please ensure that they are completing at least 10 minutes each day. I will be assessing their progress daily.
As you may be aware, there are different spellings groups within the class. Your child will continue to be given their relevant spellings and activities. If your child is in Mrs Richardson’s phonics group then they will have activities specific to them in their resource pack. Please see these resources for instructions. If you child does ‘Special Spellings’ with Mrs Parnell please see their individual packs for instructions.
I will continue to update you on the spelling rules, but alongside this can the children please continue to learn their Year 3&4 common exception words. For an extra challenge you could move the children onto the Year 5&6 common exception words which can be found online with the magic of Google.
Times tables practice
Can the children please continue to practice their times tables at least 4 times a week at home. This can be done using the multiplication practice grid (daddy grid) or using a different method of your choice. On the grids, one side has numbers already written in for ease but there is also a blank grid on the reverse. Feel free to use this to challenge your children with numbers in a different order or using harder numbers i.e. 13, 20, 100. Here is a list of websites that you can access at home:
- https://purplemash.com – search for Monster Multiplication or Multiplication.
I hope you are all keeping well and enjoying your time at home. If you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to contact me via email. I look forward to seeing you all soon!
Mrs Brennan 😊
