Homework will also be set every Wednesday to be completed for the following week. For the time being, the homework will be set online due to the circumstances we are in. Please check My Maths, Eduaction City and Spag.com to see what tasks have been set.
If additional homework needs to be set I will send that home.
Please can you make sure that your reading record is in school each day as this will be looked at and changed during guided reading sessions in class.
Extra resources to look at.
1) Please access your first lesson on Reading Plus (see letter sent home for details) This should be a daily activity as there are 5 tasks set each week. I will be keeping track of this to ensure that people are using it daily as it is a fantastic resource to use.
2) L.O. To summarise events from more than 1 paragraph
Choose a book to read from the Oxford Owl website. You can find an book appropriate to the level of your child by using the 'filter by book band' button.
Summarize the book using a story map. Draw pictures to describe the key events and write a sentence to match.
Spelling and handwriting
Access the Year 3/4 spellings below and choose 5 words each day to find both the definition of and write the word in a sentence so that should be 10 sentences.
Children can also practice writing the 5 words in their neatest handwriting using the cursive technique.
Please sign up to TES which is a free teaching resource it just requires an email address and download the link below. These can be completed daily as there is a number of tasks to be completed.
1) Learn the times table that you are currently working on. There are plenty of resources available on the following websites to help:
