Friday 11th September

Hello everyone,

We have had a really good first full week back at school. The children have started looking at Place Value in Maths, taking their time to identify how many tens and ones are in a number and also writing 2-digit numbers in words.

We are focusing on the text ‘Here we are’ by Oliver Jeffers in English and today were selecting words that rhyme, ready to complete our own class poem on Monday.

Children have been sent home with a ‘homework folder’ today. These will be used to keep log in cards, spelling work and completed times table tests until we have our purple homework books. These will then all be stuck into these books so need to be kept very safe.
Children will need the folders/books every Friday as this will be the day they get tested on their spellings and given new spellings.

Children will have their times table test on a Thursday and will all start on their 10’s. We will focus on multiplication to start with and children will receive the same test each week until they have completed the whole sheet correctly in under 5 minutes. They will then move on to their 5’s.
These sheets will come home with them on a Friday so that you can see how they are progressing and the children can work on the ones they are finding more challenging.

The TTRockstar app along with spelling shed can be used to practice spellings and times tables.

Have a lovely weekend,
Miss Clough.
