Homework for EVERYONE
* Carry on reading the books and answering questions on the Bug Club.
* To practise the 2x tables, try these games:
  • Times Table Rockstars -https://play.ttrockstars.com/ (use your Numbots password)
  • Hit the Button - https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button
  • J2Blast - School360, Resources, J2e, J2Blast.
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.
