Homework

Reading: Please ensure you are all reading every night and your reading record is signed and brought back into school, along with your home/school reading book, everyday. 

 

Spelling: Please ensure you are all practising your spellings in your spelling book every night and returning it to school everyday. Spellings will be tested every Friday and new spellings will be handed out on a Monday. 

 

Times Tables: Please ensure you are logging on to TT Rockstars at least three times a week and spending some time learning and revising your times tables. 

 

At The Grange we believe that it is crucial to work in partnership with parents and carers. There is an expectation that you will support us by ensuring that your child completes the tasks we set as homework.

 

Obviously the level of engagement will depend on your child's age but we expect you take an active part in all aspects of homework and, where necessary, indicate that you have monitored the completion of it (e.g signing the Home/School Reading Record Book.)

 

The routines of reading every day, learning spellings and multiplication tables etc. can be great fun and very rewarding for all concerned. Best results are achieved when homework is not done at the last minute but has a fixed time in a child's established routine. Short, sharp periods of activity are preferable to prolonged periods of study where concentration can be lost.

 

Effective learning and consolidation of learning cannot happen in an environment with lots of distractions (e.g. television etc.) Please give some thought to where your child works at home. 

 

Summer Term Learning

 

The KS2 National SATs will take place from Monday 9th May to Thursday 12th May 2022.

 

During this term, our topic is WW2 and as part of our History curriculum, we will be looking at a range of sources to carry out independent research. Children will also be constructing a chronological time line of British and world history to gain a clear narrative and understanding. We will be focusing on topics such as: the Blitz, rationing, evacuation, roles of women, armed forces, propaganda and the Holocaust. 

 

In English we will be reading 'Letters from the Lighthouse' and 'Goodnight Mister Tom' and discussing links to our topic that we are learning about. We will also be producing diary entries, evacuation letters, narratives and biographies. 

 

In Maths we will be continuing to focus on our arithmetic and ensuring we are confident with our four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division). We will also be furthering our understanding of fractions, decimals and percentages and converting between the three. We will be revisiting our 2D and 3D shapes and finding the perimeter, area and volume of different shapes. We will also be spending a lot of time developing our reasoning skills in order to solve problems. We will also be consolidating all the topics we have learnt in KS2 in preparation for high school. 

 

Class 6 will be taking part in outdoor PE on a Wednesday and indoor PE on a Thursday.

 

Please see below the extensive list of websites that your child can visit to consolidate and extend his/her learning.
