This week's spellings are homophones which can be easily confused and misused. We are also beginning to look at spelling exception words. The children have their () spelling practice books in their book bags and it would be fantastic for them to practice these, writing them into sentences:
there/their/they're, to/too/two, night/knight, Great/Break.
A prodigy assignment for this week is now live with a focus on addition and subtraction.
Don't forget, if you have any queries, questions or simply would like a chat, don't hesitate to contact me.
Have a wonderful weekend!
Year 2 Homework
The spellings for this week are still focused on homophones. It would be greatly beneficial to the children if they practice spelling the words and writing them into sentences to help with their contextual understanding.
Flour/Flower, Bear/Bare, Hole/Whole, One/Won, Here/Hear
For maths, there is an assignment which should be live tonight for the children to complete on Prodigy Maths.
Have a great weekend!
Year 3 homework - 14th September
Spellings this week are as follows:
Group 1: aim, paid, strain, play, away, stray, same, cake, plate, crane
Group 2: vein, reins, veil, eight, freight, weight, straight, grey, prey, they
For an extra challenge trying using each one in a sentence.
In maths this week we have been learning to add using 2 or 3 digit numbers. We have used apparatus to split the numbers into hundreds, tens and ones. Well done to the children who practised their place value skills on Prodigy this week, I have set some addition and subtraction questions for next week.
Please also continue to practise your tables. I was very impressed with the improvement this week. I can tell you have been working hard on these and your hard work is paying off.
Year 2 Homework - 7th September
The spellings this week are based on homophones. The children need to know when to use each of the following spellings so you will need to give them in context eg 'I can see a tree.' and 'The boat sailed on the sea'. For an extra challenge your child could write the whole sentence.
see/sea, blue/blew, be/bee, sun/son, quiet, quite.
Year 3 Homework - 7th September
Maths - In maths this week we have been learning about place value. I have set some place value questions on Prodigy. Your child has also been given a slip stating what times table to learn. Please learn up to 12 x your number. We will do a times table test every Friday. When your child has scored 12 out of 12 three times they will move onto the next level.
Spellings - Your child has brought home a spelling list today. There are two spelling groups. Your child's group is noted on the top of their spelling list.
Group 1: helps, helped, helping, run, running, reach, reaches, skips, skipped, skipping
Group 2: change, changes, changing, reached, reaching, splits, splitting, pushes, pushed
Challenge for both groups: Write a sentence for each word.
