13/3/20 Homework

Spelling: Week 10 Words with endings 'cian', 'sion', 'tion' and 'ssion'

Times Tables: Focus on reciting the 12 times table and 8 times table on the way to school every day.  Once the child is secure, ask lots of division inverses.  The Times Tables Rock Stars heat map identifies the 12 and 8 times tables are the weakest across the class as a whole.

Times Tables: Three visits to Times Tables Rockstars.  Please analyse any errors that your child makes to establish whether they are due to typing or memory.  If it is typing, encourage him/her to slow down.  If it is memory, practice the number sentence repeatedly until it is embedded.

6/3/20 Homework

Spelling: Week 9 Words with the prefix 'anti' or 'inter'
