Creative task for home learning - optional
Spellings Term 2 2020
With the exception of the first two weeks of the academic year, homework will be uploaded to TEAMS on a Friday at 3pm to be handed in on the following Wednesday (by 5pm). Please use pencil for maths work and date every piece of work. Parents - feel free to initial any work that children may have needed a bit of support with. This will help us to see if there's anything that they have struggled with. Children can come and see us at any time to clarify expectations or to go over the task if they're unsure. Thank you for your support with home learning.
Each week, children will need to look at the Year 5/6 spelling document below and choose either list A or list B. Children will be encouraged to research the meaning of any words they don't know, but will not be expecting any written homework for spellings. Children are welcome to show what they have done to learn their spellings if they wish to record this. For example, pyramid writing, spell-me-doodles, graffiti walls etc. We will explore these strategies further in school. Spelling tests will be on Fridays.
The biggest impact you can have on supporting your child's learning and progress at home is to read with them regularly. We would suggest aiming for at least three or four times a week, even if this is only for a brief 5-minute session. Please engage your child in as much talk about books as you can, asking them questions about what they have read and exploring any puzzles of questions that arise from the books they read. Although they are becoming much more independent in their reading at Y5 age, they still love being read to. Do have a look at our list of recommended reads as a guide to the level of books that the average Y5 child should be aiming to read, and do come and see us if you have any questions. Children have their Oxford Reading Buddy log-in details - these are the same as last year. There are lots of really good quality texts with a range of challenging and engaging quizzes. These can count as reading at home, so please include these when signing reading records. Please record on the relevant TEAMs task how many times a week your child has read to an adult - this will be monitored regularly in school.
Our weekly homework tasks will focus on a maths activity that will usually support and consolidate the learning that we have been doing in school. Sometimes there might be a mixture of maths questions for general revision. Children can choose from Mild, Spicy or Hot level. We'll attach an answer sheet - please ensure that children mark and, where appropriate, correct their work before submitting it on TEAMs. It would be really helpful if children marked and corrected in a different colour so that we can quickly and easily identify their misconceptions when we're responding to their work.
Children will also be asked to spend a few minutes a day practising their tables using our TT Rockstars app.
