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 will be recoreded at the back of English books  so you can see achievement and progress when English books are sent home.
  • 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.

Learning this week

In Maths, our focus has been reviewing and extending our learning on fractions. We have ordered fractions from smallest to largest, added and subtracted fractions with the same denominator. Also, we have found unit (1/3) and non-unit fractions  (3/8) of amounts.  Then, we used our fraction skills to solve problems. 

Our first drafts of the eye witness reports were written and have been edited and improved. We used rubrics to edit and improve our use of the features of eyewitness reports as well as our descriptive 'show me, don't me' sentences. 

"Earthquakes can be sad," explained Roquan during our FLCC lessons. This week we have considered the impact of earthquakes have upon people's lives. We used drama to describe how earthquakes are created. 

We have completed our string printing in art, creating repeating greek patterns.  

Learning next week

Our learning journey based on the book, Escape from Pompeii will be completed. We will write our final drafts and then reflect on them.

Our focus in Maths will be statistics. We will look at pictograms, interpreting facts and thinking carefully about vocabulary, like most and least popular. 

We will continue to consider pilgrimages in RE and polling in computing. In science, we will continue to investigate plants.
