Children will be bringing home books, which have been placed on the Accelerated Reader system; these have been assessed through the Accelerated reader Star reader test. Children will be retested at intervals during the year to monitor progress and recalculate book levels.
As mentioned in a previous Parentmail, it is important for children to read for at least 10 minutes a day and ideally to someone. The children need to bring back their books daily, so they can quiz and receive a new book to read.
Discovery class have been given a bookmark to write their spellings on, and to keep in their Accelerated Reader book, so they can practice spellings at home and in school. The children had five the first week and have now received a further three of their choosing. Each child’s spellings are based on their individual need. Children should be practicing these at home; we will have our spelling test on a Tuesday morning.
Maths and Creative Homework
At the moment, I am still waiting for Purplemash to update their system so I can access my current class. Once I am able to do this I will be setting Maths homework to complete at home, as well as their creative homework. I will send a further Parentmail to confirm that the system has swapped over.
In the meantime if you wish for your children to complete some Maths work at home, they could log onto Times Table Rock Stars or Numbots. Please see my previous Parentmail, for your child’s individual log-in.
You may wish to look at BBC Primary Catch-up sessions, which revise work from their previous years. Please see links below:
