P4F & P4J Homework – Monday 22nd March

Homework

Reading – At some point this week you will be given a banded reading book. This is to be read at home and in school, so please bring it in every day. If you do not have a banded book yet, you should be remembering to take home your AR book.

Spelling – You may wish to practise your spelling words on Spelling City. If you would like to complete written work, you can complete an active spelling task using the PDFon Teams. You do not have to hand this in.

The spelling rule this week is ‘y’ for the short vowel sound ‘i’ (as in fin). There are no new common words this week.

Group A – myth, pyramid, lyrics, syrup.

Group B – myth, pyramid, system, lyrics, typical, syrup

Maths – You now have your target table home to practise. You should practise reciting your table from memory and also memorise the multiples going forwards. For example, for the 3 times table, you would say 0,3,6,9,12 etc. It would be good if an adult can listen to you doing this and when they ask you to stop, tell them what times what gives that answer. Once you think you know your table well, ask an adult to ask you the facts out of sequence. You may wish to practise your number bonds and tables by playing Hit the Button, Sumdog or any games on the P4 Maths Links. Hit the button is a good one because you can set it to your target table.


Thank you,
