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 practicing your spellings on your spelling sheet every night and returning it to school everyday. Spellings will be tested every Friday and new spellings will be handed out on the same day. 

 

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

 

During this term, our topic is ‘The Second World War’ and as part of our History curriculum, using primary and secondary sources along with artefacts, we will be learning about life in Britain during the Second World War and its causes and impact.

 

In English we will be reading 'Letters from the Lighthouse’ by Emma Carroll and discussing in great detail the impact the war is having on the family. We will be using these discussions to create pieces of wartime writing including: postcards, diary entries, newspaper articles and stories. We will also be writing wartime menus and discussing and writing about life as an evacuee. We will also be reading 'Goodnight Mister Tom' by Michelle Magorian and comparing the experiences of war across the two books. 

 

In Maths we will be continuing to revisit our arithmetic and ensuring we are confident with our four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division). We will also be working on geometry and measurements, reading graphs and data whilst continuing to work on our fractions, decimals and percentages. We will also be spending a lot of time developing our reasoning skills in order to solve problems.

 

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