Children have a spelling book that should always be in their book bag. They no longer have a formal spelling test each week but instead have a spelling rule or pattern that they are working on and will be investigating during spelling lessons. They will have an informal check weekly of a random selection of words linked to the spelling rules and patterns they have learnt so far.
It is vitally important that the children are reading regularly at home to an adult. The more they can practise at home, the better they will become. The children should aim to read five times a week. If they read five times in a week they will get a sticker and for every five stickers they will get a certificate. This Year our reading certificates will follow the theme of a Story Quest.
Each week the children are expected to learn their times tables. They will progressively work through a range of different times tables- starting with learning single times tables moving through mixed timestables, to division and decimals.
Each week the children are expected to read at least five times and record in their reading diaries.
Revise the spelling rules they have learnt so far.
Learn their times tables.
