Preparation/Catch up Homework
Due to the amount of time the children have not been at school, homework will be covering year 4 learning. This is so the children can consolidate the previous years learning at home before beginning the year 5 work in class
Preparation homework will enable the children to start their lessons with some knowledge before we begin. This will enable them to progress further, quicker and deeper within lessons.
One piece of Maths homework and one piece of English homework will be set weekly. Homework will be given via this page and should be completed as independently as possible in their purple homework books. The children should check their learning using the answers provided before bringing the homework into school.
The homework will be set on a Monday and will be due in the following Monday.
As a school we are now using an online platform called Spelling Frame (many of you used Spelling Frame during COVID Home Learning.
Regularly, I will set the children a spelling rule or pattern that they can practise using Spelling Frame online. At the end of each spelling rule the children will take a test on Spelling Frame in school.
When the children log onto Spelling Frame, they will select the rule that has been set for that week. Then, they can play various games to practice the rules as well as trying a mock test before the real one.
A video on Spelling Frame has been added to the class page below.
Children should read at least three pages per night of their reading book and they should complete the Accelerated Reader Quiz when they have finished.
Children should use the TTRockstars programme to practise their times tables regularly.
The minimum knowledge that children need to know for each topic have been put together onto one knowledge organiser. Click here to be taken to the different Knowledge Organisers for our topics.
Our P.E days will be Monday and Thursday.
Our first two PE topics are Yoga and Basketball.
Please remember that earrings are not allowed to be worn during PE lessons and tape coverings are not allowed.
WLPS PE tracksuit is available to buy from Penn Sports.
