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...

(list 4:9)

Practise 1

(copy into space)

Practise 2

(fold and hide)

Can spell word

(check and correct)

Spelling tip:

If the root verb ends in ‘t’ the suffix ‘ion’ forms ‘tion’ (invent – invention).






















Spelling tip:

A long ‘a’ sound is always followed by ‘tion’.  For words ending ‘te’, drop the ‘e’ to add ‘ion’.






















*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. Our timetables to practice at home this week are 8 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 'Adventure' in particular looking at Volcanoes. Similarly to last term, children will be asked to bring in a piece of homework of their choice, that focuses on our class topic. Homework for this can be brought in any time throughout the term leading up to Christmas. Here are some suggestions to get you started...


- Research volcanoes that are still active. You could maybe even look at volcanoes under the sea!
- Find out what happened during historic volcanic eruptions such as Pompeii. You could create a letter or a diary entry from a survivor.
- Create a model of a volcano. You could even have a go at making it erupt!

- Look at famous adventurers and their achievements. Could you set out on an adventure of your own?


Here are some websites to get you started with your homework
