Working together on our geographical knowledge.
There are spelling to learn at home every week. These are taken from the statutory spelling list. 
The focus this half term in maths is to become proficient at all timetables. Children are expected to know all times tables facts up to 12 x 12. Children have practice time in school but your help at home is very much appreciated. 
Children are able to lend books from our class library. They are encouraged to choose books that interest them. They should be looking to read a little every night.
I usually try to included additional homework that will help the children in their classwork. This may be practicing a skill that they need in class or research that will give them a boost in class.
