Home Learning

Home Learning Information
 
Spellings will be set and tested each Friday. Please encourage your child to practise these regularly – little and often is usually the most effective method for long-term learning.
 
Each Friday, there will also be a short home learning task to be completed before the following Friday.
 
Our online reading scheme, Bug Club, is now up and running. Please log in - and let me know if you have any problems accessing the site. Your child now has access to a range of books at their reading level - I hope they enjoy reading them to you! Guided Reading continues to take place in the classroom under the direction of the class teacher.
 
Many thanks,

Spellings
 
We have two spelling groups in Ash class now: one is called Hulkflower (don't ask!), and the other is called Flash. The children should know which group they are in - this week, Hulkflower have an A4 sheet with their spellings on, whereas Flash have a laminated card with their spellings.
 
Hulkflower
This week's spellings look at the endings -ing, -ed and -er added to verbs where no change is needed to the root word.

Please practise these with your child for next Friday's test - little and often throughout the week is usually best.
 
Number work
We have been working so hard on our addition skills this week, the children have done brilliant work! This week, can they collect two sets of items from around the house (three teddies and two bananas for example), and write a number sentence to show their addition work (3 + 2 = 5)? They could also record it as a part-whole model, or show it on a number line. However they choose to do it, please encourage and praise their efforts being super mathematicians!
13th - 20th November
 
Spellings
This week's spellings look at the sounds /l/ and /k/, /z/ spelt ‘ll’, ‘zz’ and ‘ck’.
 
well
pull
full
wall
buzz
fizz
back

Number work:
Keep practising those number bonds to 10 (pairs of numbers which add up to 10):
0 + 10 = 10
1 + 9 = 10
2 + 8 = 10
3 + 7 = 10
4 + 6 = 10
5 + 5 = 10
6 + 4 = 10
7 + 3 = 10
8 + 2 = 10
9 + 1 = 10
10 + 0 = 10

This week we have been learning about Guy Fawkes and the Gunpowder Plot. The children have loved finding out about the story and getting to know the characters. They did some brilliant role playing too!
 
In ReadWriteInc sessions, we have been consolidating our knowledge of the Set 2 sounds we were learning before half-term by practising reading ditties, writing sentences and playing games to embed those sounds. Next week we will start to use books for our reading in the sessions, and our writing activities and games will be inspired by the story.
 
In our number work this week, we have been practising using part-whole models to think about partitioning numbers to 10. We have looked again at the number bonds to 10, e.g. 0 + 10, 1 + 9, 2 + 8, 3 + 7 etc. Next week we will be introducing work on addition.
 
Next week, our topic focus will be Remembrance Day.
 
Spellings
For our first set of spellings we're looking at the sounds /f/ and /s/, spelt ‘ff’ and ‘ss'.
 
off
puff
sniff
miss
hiss
less
if
us
bus
yes
 
Number work:

2 + 8 = 10
3 + 7 = 10
4 + 6 = 10
5 + 5 = 10
6 + 4 = 10
7 + 3 = 10

Here are some ideas to help your child learn to spell words:
  • Copy the words and write the words using different media eg. magnetic letters, paint the words, write the words in shaving foam, gel pens or make them with Playdoh.
  • Write the tricky part of a word in a different colour eg slight.
  • Sound out words as you write them and chunk the words into small parts.
  • Do a "look, cover, write".  Look at the word, copy it then try to write the word by memory.  Repeat 2 or three times for each word.
  • Make up silly rhymes using each letter in the words eg because - big elephants can't always understand small elephants.
  • Write the words with a letter missing and see if your child can spot which letter is missing and where it should go.
  • Write the word, chop up the letters then rearrange in the correct order.
  • Write a silly story using all the words in the list.
  • Invent your own games and let me know what they are and I'll add them to my list.
