Homework for March 2 – 6

Reception

The children have a worksheet based on the nursery rhyme “Twinkle, twinkle, little star”. Our current topic is “Transport and Journeys” and as a result of talking about flying, aeroplanes, rockets, etc, we then got onto talking about the solar system, why we have seasons, night and day, etc, and the class are truly fascinated by it.
Exercises include name practice, colouring in, matching pairs, drawing/recognising sets of 2 and formation of the number 2, and the use of the prepositions “above” and “below”.

Year 1

For homework this week I would like the children to complete the following tasks:

Numeracy: Number Families.The children must find the number bonds and write them in the boxes.

Literacy: Spellings.The children will receive Spelling Books this week.  Inside the books will be a selection of words that they need to practice reading and writing. There is space inside the book to practice, but I would prefer the children to do it the first few times on separate paper.

There will not be any formal spelling tests this term.

Science: Rough and Smooth. I would like the children to look around the house for different objects and identify whether they are rough and smooth and record their results in the chart.

Year 2

Literacy: This week we practiced vocabulary and verbs. Ask your child words with the letter b and thing about sentences with those words check spelling (bucket, balloon, bee, boat, bicycle, bear). Use verbs: (Clean, jump, ride, fly, eat). We have also practiced spelling and phonics this week, kids have done a great job spelling! Spelling homework will be written in the spelling book. Please make sure they complete the First and Second try.

Numeracy: This week children have practiced multiplications. Times tables (2, 5 and 10) Please make sure they are practicing and memorizing them. They have done a great effort. This weekend they need to continue practicing.

We also practiced measuring in centimeters with the ruler. If you have a ruler at home ask them to draw lines of 10, 15, 20, 30, and 25 cm.

They are improving their skills very fast!

Science: We talked about human life cycle. Practice at home the 4 stages: baby, boy or girl (childhood) teenager and adult (adulthood), ask them: In which stage are you?

Please read with your child 10 minutes every day. Make sure they understand what they are reading; we will need to help them increase their vocabulary, when they are ready, we will give them a new book to help them increase their fluency.

Year 3 

Literacy: This week the children have been looking at pronouns. We have been learning how to change sentences to make them sound and flow better. They began working on an exercise which I would like them to complete individually, as part of an on going assessment.

Numeracy: We have once again been looking at different aspects of division and multiplication. This is aimed at building on the skills gained in the previous weeks. I would like the children to complete the worksheets enclosed.
