Ideas of ways to help at home:
Read newspapers, watch CBBC Newsround (there are 5 minute round-ups daily), do some cooking (weighing, reading scales, setting timers etc), practise telling the time, using money (adding amounts in shops, finding change etc).
G Please try to practise in here as much as you can.
This is where you play to try and record your best performance and improve your rock status. Your challenge on here is to answer all times tables up to 12 x 12
This is a bit like the garage room where tables are set for you individually. The difference is you get to play against other band-mates and challenge each other.

This term I would like the children to read for 10 minutes everyday. This can be in the format of 'storytime' at bedtime with a book from home or can be the school reading book. Either way I would appreciate a comment in the reading record to show they have read something.
I will set 3 tasks per week on Mathletics (these will rollover if not completed the week before) and the appropriate spellings on Readiwriter. I would suggest no more than 20 minutes for this per day at the most. The children do not need to do Mathletics and Spelling practice every night.
Some weeks I will set a 2do on Purple Mash and I will write a note on here to make that clear for those weeks. These are optional activities.
TT Rockstars has been set at 2x, 5x and 10x tables. This is also optional.
I would like to re-iterate that there is no negative consequence for not completing ALL the tasks. As long as the children are having a go at some reading they can spread the other activities out over the week and that is perfect! I don't want homework to be a battle for anyone, so please do e-mail me if there are any issues.
Thank you for your help with this.
