Home Learning

Top education researchers tell us that homework has minimal impact for primary age pupils, unless it requires children to rehearse and practise. We have therefore adapted our routines to reflect this. The routines for children in this year group are as follows:

  • Reading and/or talking about their reading to an adult for at least 20 minutes, 5 times a week. This will be evidenced through reading being recorded in reading records. Reading records and reading books should be coming into school daily. Reading records will be signed by teachers to check regular reading is occurring.
  • Learning spelling patterns linked to age-related expectations ready for use in dictation towards the end of every week. These spellings will be on year group notice boards and should be practised at home. Dictation (recorded on sheets) will now be sent home weekly in reading folders so you can see achievement and progress.
  • Reciting multiplication tables to increase their fluency so that they can be applied in other areas of maths and problem solving. These will be tested in our weekly times tables challenge and will be sent home.
  • Half-termly creative home learning will be set at the start of each half term and will celebrated and fed back on during our creative home learning showcases.

Purple home learning books will no longer being used as practice can be done at home. You will be able to see achievement and progress through the dictation and times tables challenge sheets going home weekly. You will also be able to witness progress through class exercise books for English and maths being sent home once during every half-term.

Reading Challenge 

Please read the information about our new reading challenge:

http://www.fieldingprimary.com/news/detail/new-year-group-recommended-reading-lists-parent-vi/

 

Once the children have read a book, they will need to complete one of the reading activities outlined below. This can be done in their reading planners or on a separate piece of paper.. We can't wait to read the responses  and they can be done more than once. Ideas for responses are:

1. Recall the main events of the story. 

2. Define the meaning of two new words you have found in the story.

3. Describe the character you could be friends with. Why?

4. List 4 things you liked about the book. 

5. Compare the book to another book you have read. 

6. Create a new title for the book based on what you have read.

 

5 books = Bronze Award

10 books = Silver Award

15 Books = Gold Award

Current Learning

Maths 

We have been continuing to think about time this week. First, we continued to consider vocabulary like quicker, slower, earlier and later. We identified what month came before or after by answering questions using a chart and the months of the year. We have thought about how we measure time and what units we use to measure.  We have begun to learn how to tell the time to the hour and half past the hour. 

 

English

This week we have sequenced the story, Tiger Child using chronological order. We have looked at past tense verbs by adding 'ed' and have been spelling words ending with 'ed' accurately. We have written our first drafts, writing in role using first person, time connectives and adjectives. We have also started to reflect on our learning using the rubric below to help.

 

Fielding Learning Challenge Curriculum

This term our focus is 'Who was famous when Mum and Dad were young?'  

Learning Next Week

Maths 

We will apply our knowledge on time to solve problems. We will use our new vocabulary like earlier and later as well as apply our knowledge to solve problems. Reflecting on our progress will also be a focus. 

English

We will continue our work on the Tiger Child. We will edit and improve our work, write final drafts and reflect on what we have done well and identify our next steps.
