Sapling Class homework
Please take time to look at the spelling rule for the week and practise the spelling homework linked to this. Spelling will be assessed on Friday. Below are some websites the children can use in and out of school to practise their spellings further:
By the end of Year 3, the children should be fluent with the multiplication and related division facts of the 3, 4 and 8 times tables.
By the end of Year 4, the children should be fluent with all of the multiplication and related division facts up to the 12 times tables.
The children have a Times Table quiz every Friday where they work their way up through increasingly harder levels, as well as quickfire questions to keep them on their toes.
Each child has a username and password for Times Table Rockstars, a website which encourages the children to improve their recall! We also have a class leader board to display our achievements, this includes teachers too!
Please see Miss McCubbin if your child has any problems logging in.
Reading continues to be one of the most important skills for children to continually practise. Children are asked to read at least 3 times a week and have a grown up sign their reading record. Explore books by different authors and remember to read a range of styles of text e.g. fiction, non-fiction, poetry. To promote reading for pleasure in school, we encourage book talk through daily story time as well as allowing the children to share picture and poetry books every week.
Below are a number of websites that support children’s reading development by offering free e-books and audiobooks. If possible, make time to join your local library so your child can explore all of the wonderful books they have to offer!
