Spellings -


Weekly spellings will be sent home every Friday with your child, for a test in class the following week. Our spellings to practice at home this week are...



Practise 1

(copy into space)

Practise 2

(fold and hide)

Can spell word

(check and correct)

Spelling tip:

‘ch’ can make a sound like ‘sh’ (e.g. shoot-chute).  Most of these words come from French.























*Some pupils may have a paper set of high frequency spellings. Please check with me if you are unsure what to practise. 


Rock Star Maths - As a class we complete our timetables test 3 times per week. This week is the 12 times table. 


Mathletics - Children have been provided with logins to access their online Mathletics accounts at home. Weekly challenges will be set on this by Miss Rooney, for your child to complete if possible.


Topic - This half term our project will focus around 'Ancient Civilizations' in particular looking at The Mayans. Similarly to last term, children will be asked to bring in a piece of homework of their choice, that focuses on our class topic.
