Your child has been given a Year 3 or 4 (depending on their year) 'Maths' and 'Grammar, Punctuation & Spelling' CGP book. They will be set a task to complete in each book on alternate weeks (one week they will be given a maths task, the following week it will be a GPS task). The task that children are set will always be linked to recent learning in class.
Due in: Following Wednesday
In the front of each book, you will find the page number/s that your child needs to complete each week. These will also be displayed on our classroom door. Please encourage your child to complete these tasks, as it will give them an additional chance to consolidate their learning. Please also make sure that your child brings their CGP books back into school on time, as I will go through each task set with the children so that any misconceptions can be addressed.
All children in Sweden Class will be given a reading book to take home. Please record any reading that they do at home in their reading record. This year, children who read regularly at home will be able to work towards receiving prizes and certificates as part of our whole school reading challenge. These will be presented to them during achievement assemblies.
When your child has reads recorded in their record, please encourage them to remember to hand their records in so that these can be acknowledged and added to the reading challenge. When children are ready to change their books, please also remind them to do this. They have access to a wide range of fiction and non-fiction books in our class book corner to choose from.
Children who are not yet free readers will be sent home with a book from the book band scheme, but they can also take a free-reader book to share with an adult at home alongside this. These books are usually quite short so children will need to change these often. They are also available from our book corner. We will assess these children regularly and move them up to the next level when appropriate.
All children have an account on Times Table Rock Stars. This is a fantastic online resource which helps children to learn and practice their times tables and related division facts. Children will be using this in school, but it would be brilliant if they are using this regularly at home too. We will have a weekly focus times table, and children can just practise this times table by clicking on a 'garage' game on TT Rock Stars.
Alternatively you can download the TT Rock Stars app for your child to use at home.
