English - This half-term we will be reading The Lion The Witch and the Wardrobe. Your child will receive regular reading homework so please ensure you listen to them read as frequently as possible and discuss the text that they are reading. If you have any questions, please see Mr Rodger.
It is important that your child reads texts which are suitable for their age and ability and which challenge their thinking. Remember - just because a book is popular, does not mean it is worthwhile. Please help your child to choose appropriate books.
Spelling homework is given on a Monday and to be completed for a Friday, when there will be a spelling test. Your child should use the 'Look, Cover, Write, Check' method to learn their spellings.
How many of the following texts have you read?
RECOMMENDED READING FOR YEAR 5 (AGE 9-10)
RECOMMENDED READING FOR YEAR 6 (AGE 10-11)
(Especially demanding texts in bold)
Each morning, your child will take part in what we call, 'Morning Maths'. This is an opportunity for your child to practise their calculation skills within their own class group.
Following this, there is a daily maths lesson, where your child will work within a set group.
Homework can be expected on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
Your child will have received a Mathletics username and password. They will be expected to carry out homework on Mathletics once a week. Please assist them in completing this and if there are any problems, see Mr Rodger.
Have you taken part?

Here's an example from Friday 8th November:
