This term, we are learning about:
Who will support my learning?
Teachers: Mrs Markus and Mrs Nicholls
HLTA: Mrs Baker
TA: Miss Dorsett
Reading - every day, signed by an adult in your reading record. Books can be changed on Friday. We will be monitoring their use of Accelerated Reader on a weekly basis.
Times Tables - daily practice using TTRockstars which will be monitored weekly.
Spelling - your child is going to be set spellings to learn at home on a weekly basis. The spellings set will link to the focus of the spelling lesson being taught that week and the number of words will be a maximum of ten depending on the level of difficulty. The words to learn will be set via Microsoft Teams every Monday. Your child can use a range of strategies to learn their spellings in readiness for a spelling test on a Friday.
Topic - Topic related homework will be set once a term via Assignments (linked to Teams). Your child will be provided with a list of activities and we expect to see at least one piece of evidence of an outcome uploaded to Assignments by the end of each term.
