Pupils will be continuing with their World War 2 themed grid. One piece of homework from the grid must be completed each week. Maths homework and spellings focused on a specific pattern or rule will also be sent home each week along with a ‘spelling menu’ containing activity choices.
Reading and simply enjoying books at home with your child will also further their development as will helping them learn their times tables.
I hope this will give you a further insight into your child’s education. If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to contact me.
