Learning Log Homework is set every Friday and should be handed in for the following Thursday unless stated otherwise. Each week's Learning Log is posted below.
Spellings are given out in the child's own RWInc Spelling Log Book and the date of the test will be recorded in the book.
Accelerated Reader - children can quiz and change their books until 9:00 every morning and during the afternoons. Parents can check their child's progress on Home Connect. See your class teacher for a login.
Times Table Rock Stars are practised in school each week. Children are encouraged to also practise them at home to improve their speed and accuracy. Your child should know their log in and password to access this. If there are any problems, please speak to your class teacher.
Learning Log Homework
This week, we would like you to think of any questions you’d like to ask the year 6 teachers next week when you go for your transition days.
Also, with your end of year spelling test at the end of next week, please practise your year 5/6 words and revise your year 3/4 words (which are both at the back of your log book). Remember that the end of year test has words from every year group (year 2- 5), so make sure that you recap all your spelling patterns.
i.e. short vowel sound – double consonant, swap, double or drop (adding ing, ed, est. er), drop the y, add ies for some plurals
Year 5 - Half Term homework - To read AR book each day for at least 15 minutes (target). Please be ready to quiz in the first week back to gain much needed points towards your Summer Targets. Also practise orange words given (see below) and higher times tables multiplication and division facts.
This week there will be no Learning Log homework as the children are not in school on Thursday and Friday next week. Therefore this weekend the children need to concentrate on their AR reading so that, if possible, they are ready to quiz by Wednesday. They can then can have a new book for the longer Half Term break. Could they also concentrate on learning their higher times tables (6,7,8,9 and 12's) as they are finding them challenging? Thank you for your support. Mrs Padley's spelling group will have a test next Wednesday on units 7 and 8 and spellings from previous years. All Year 5 will have orange words to learn over Half Term for a test after the holiday.
