Spelling task: We will send the words the children have been practising in class on a Monday and a Friday. They need to look at the word, cover it, have a go at writing it and then check to see if they have spelt it correctly. We hope to see these words spelt correctly when the children use them in their writing.


Maths: Keep practising your number bonds, quick recall of addition and subtraction facts to 20. Look around your surroundings, which numbers can you see? Think about how numbers are made- how many tens and how many ones can you see in 2-digit numbers?


This term, we will start to learn our 2, 5 and 10 times tables. Can you count in 2s, 5s and 10s? Can you start to learn the multiplication and division facts?


Reading: Please read with your child at least three times a week and sign your child’s reading diary. Your child will bring home a book on their reading colour or phonics level to read themselves plus a book from the class library to share with a grown up. As always, there are prizes for reading milestones! Reading folders need to be brought to school every day. We will count the reads on a Thursday ready to give out the reading rewards on a Friday.
