This term's weekly spellings
Your child has been put into a spelling group (either group 1,2 or 3). This will be shown on the front of their orange spelling book in their book bag. We send spellings out every week for children to learn for a test on Friday. We give you a different strategy each week to help you support your child in learning their spellings. We recommend practising 'little but often' 5 minutes a day which will help to embed learning.
Christmas spellings- Please see the sheet below which helps you to practise the common exception words for Year 1 and 2 with your child. These are just words children need to recognise, read and spell and these words don't always follow any spelling rules we are learning.
Thank you for all your support in helping the children learning their spellings this year.
Topic Home Learning for this Half Term
Thank you for all the FANTASTIC projects you sent in this term. The children did such a brilliant job and really enjoyed this topic. We had great fun sharing the projects together in school and learning more about those significant people from History.
Have a great Christmas everyone!
Maths Topic for Spring 2021
Multiplication and Division
Next year we will be looking at Multiplication and Division in our Maths lessons. The children will be learning about arrays and how to group objects to count them. We are also continuing with our times table tests on Fridays and some children have now moved onto the 10 times table.
Here is a useful game for them to play to help them learn:
We also use TT Rockstars as a school to help the children improve their fluency in multiplication:
Don't forget to go into the 'Garage' area to access 2 and 10 times table questions only.
Good luck and have fun!
