Each week, I send home a little letter explaining what we've been up to this week and what the homework is. It also contains: a 'Website of the Week'; a 'Family Talking Point' and a 'Joke of the Week'. See below for a link to the OneDrive folder that contains all of my weekly homework letters.
This year, we're having a real push on ensuring that the basics are practised at home: regular work on times tables, spelling and reading are crucial in helping your child progress at school.
For those that want a little more, there are optional activities set on spag.com and mymaths.com - you have received a copy of your child's passwords for these sites in a letter at the beginning of term, and they also have them in their homework diaries.
See below for my top tips on helping your child with their reading and times tables. A copy of the word bank my advice refers to is also available below. Spellings are taught in key stage ability groups on a Thursday and tested the following Wednesday - the children have these in their spelling books.
