Homework

 Homework in Willow Class

The learning logs will be sent home every other Friday and will be expected in the following Thursday. The purpose of the challenge is to extend your learning and to encourage you to be creative in producing a piece of independent work related to our topic to share with your classmates. The quality of work produced by you in your learning logs is something to be proud of. Well done! 

Maths homework will be sent home on a Monday during the weeks in between and will be expected to be handed in the following Thursday.

Spelling will be sent weekly on a Monday, with words generated through errors during the week in addition to a focussed spelling pattern. This will be expected in the following Monday.

 

Children are encouraged to practice their times tables as much as possible

 

Times table activities

 

Singing, chanting

These “old-fashioned” strategies still help. Say the multiples as you go up the stairs – eg: 3, 6, 9, 12.... Time how quickly they can do it. Can they run up the stairs? Can they do it backwards when they come back down? (Please walk forwards though I don’t want to be responsible for any A&E trips! J)

 

Writing them:

For the arty children make a tables poster for their bedroom wall.

 

Speed writing

How quickly can you write all the facts in the times table of your choice?

Can you beat your time? Race your parents / older siblings!

 

Rhymes and patterns

8 x 8 = 64 (I ate and I ate and was sick on the floor, 8 x 8 is 64)

8 x 7=56 (56=7 x 8) (the numbers in this times table fact are in order 5, 6, 7, 8!)

 

Here are a selection of websites the children in Willow class may wish to visit to further help and enhance their learning, I hope you enjoy them!
