Homework

Weekly homework supports the learning in class and this is handed out and handed in on Mondays. Weekly homework consists of a spelling list and a times tables list, pupils will be tested on Monday mornings.

 

Group 1 times tables this term will be focusing on the  6, 8, 7, 9.  This weeks times tables (test date  10.07.17) are the 8 x table.

NOTE FOR PARENTS

This can be a really trick one to grasp, but we will be looking at at many times before the end of the year. Please don't worry if you find that your child is finding it hard, the 9 x table can be really tricky. Just focus on the first five facts up to 8 x 5 then once they've got that we can move onto the other facts.

Lots of practical activities and the maths games found below can be a great way to learn. 

 

Group 2 times tables this term will be focusing on the 7, 9, 11, 12. This week will be the  9 x table (test date 10.07.17). Children will also be asked related facts.

HOMEWORK TASK 

 

For your final project this academic year I would like some help with planning for our topics next year.

I would like you to think about one or two topics that you would enjoy learning about next academic year.

I would then like you to persuade me that your topic is a good choice by telling me some facts about it, including what tasks/activates you would like to do that are related to your chosen topic. 

 

As usual, you can present your information any way you like: a poster; a persuasive letter; a presentation on PowerPoint or Keynote - the choice is yours!

 

I'm sure that you will come up with some exiting topics for us to cover! - if you can link you trip to a school trip that would be even better!!

 

 

Other Online Maths Games

 

SumDog - This is a great online maths game that all of the pupils have their own login for. It not only encourages them to become better and mental maths, but also I can track their progress. It will only work on Google Chrome, however there are two apps available on I-Pads and Android. 

 

This is an interactive game we use in class to support the children's learning of times tables, but it also has games centered around doubles, halves and number bonds! It is compatible with the I-pads too! just click the link below...

Hit The Button 

Here is another great website, just click on your year group and the current maths topic of number and place value to see all of your targets and some great interactive games. I've shown the children this so they should know what they are looking for.
