Supporting your child at home…

Home Learning Opportunities

Homework will be sent home on Friday and is expected back in school the following Wednesday. Children who do not complete their homework will be expected to during school hours. 

We also look forward to seeing the children bring in their completed Home Learning projects. We will celebrate these in class and we will also share some of the work in a school assembly, typically the Monday before the end of the half-term.

Maths

  • Every child has a login for our exciting new Times Tables Rockstars software. This allows your child to rehearse their times tables, play against other children and have fun with their Avatar. Please encourage your child to use the software and let us know if you have any problems accessing it.
  • Times Tables will be constantly rehearsed in school. To help your child develop a rapid recall, additional practice at home is hugely valuable (even if this is on a walk or a car journey).
  • Your child is using the following links to support their times tables recall so feel free to make use of them at home:

English

How can you help your child in English?

  • Read regularly at home and discuss your child’s reading book with them:

Who are the main characters?

What happened in the story?

Is it fiction or non-fiction?

Why does [character] feel [emotion]?

If you were [character] what would you do?

Can you think of any other books that are similar?

What other books has this author written?

  • Log onto Read Theory where your child can read texts and develop their comprehension skills.

For the first half of the Summer term, our topic is Mighty Metals.

For our English, we will read The Iron Man so why not have a read using the following link:

You could even have a go at making your own Iron Creature. An Iron Giant? An Iron Baby? You may wish to draw your Iron Creature, paint it, make it out of metals or even create it using objects in your garden.

Don’t forget to describe your creatures personality!

You could also research King Midas and his Golden Touch. Can you retell the story? Perhaps as a comic strip?

For Science, we will be exploring Forces and Magnets. If you have a magnet at home, why not go on a treasure hunt to see what’s magnetic in your house and garden?

You could even do some research into robots and create a fact file about the different types.
