Current Home-Learning Tasks: (updated 08/11/19)

SUPERB projects (just two left to share) but we have learnt so much and had such creative presentations.....they will be displayed in the main corridor as from next week. Thank you all for your hard work! Lots of housepoints earned.

THIS WEEKEND - please practise your target spellings KS1 words with the green highlights.  Mrs Scott will be testing you on these on Tuesday.  Some children will then be moved onto the Year 3/4 list and some will continue to consolidate the Year 2 list.  Handwriting being unclear was often the issue. 

ALSO try Purple Mash - we explored it yesterday and it is just a case of experimenting and seeing what is there.  It has some games but is mainly a great source of child friendly tools to publish, word-process and graph etc.   LINK via our website: Purple Mash 

Reading - BEST KS2 CLASS for reading Keep it up!

3x a week minimum  - please sign at the end of each week's reading so your child can get a housepoint

Langley love getting dojo points!

Spellings have been provided in each child's Home-Learning Journal.

A weekly test is on Tuesdays with Mrs Scott.  This gives the children a week to practise their target words (5 of them a week) using their LCWC.  Follow this link to our developing Spelling Strategies page. If your child practises 3x a week a housepoint will be awarded.

Over the coming term parents can continue to work on supporting your child to secure the rest of the highlighted words from your revision list.


BBC Dance Mat touch typing programme was of interest to many Y3 as they are quite new to laptops.  I've included the link here: 


 Maths - we are testing our rapid recall of multiplication and division facts as part of a weekly arithmetic lesson. We have now learnt how to use

To practise either 2x,5x,10x with 6 second recall (some people also do 3x, or 4x) like in the test in class. 

To support this, I have assigned children games on the Mathletics website Login details are in the front cover of your child's home-learning journal.  I will be showing them how to use the site next week - but please feel free to explore and play the allocated games.  NEW GAMES NOW ASSIGNED for Term 2


What we have been learning:

We have been working on addition and subtraction this week with 3 digit numbers and adding 10s   

Our trip to the Hindu temple was really interesting and the children have been using the visit to aid the writing of a recount in paragraphs.
