Home learning this week is spellings. Year 2 have spellings from their word list found in the front of their home learning books and Year 3 are continuing their learning on adding suffixes to root words.


Wednesday 14th March

In topic we have been learning about the world and its continents in particular. Please can you research two countries from different continents and find at least 5 facts about each. It will be great to share these in the class and add them to their continent information booklets.



Wednesday 7th March

In our science topic, Animals, including humans, we have been learning the basic needs of different animals. Stuck into your child's book is a sheet for them to design their pet (or a chosen pet) a new home. This home must cater for all its basic needs as well as cater to keep their animals happy and healthy.

- It can be as wacky as they like

- Please label the home and its features

- If the sheet isn't big enough, then go all out with an A3 sheet!

Times tables are very important to learn and are integral to the learning and understanding of division, fractions and decimals moving into and up through KS2. Please could your child spend time learning their times tables. 2x, 5x and 10x are the first ones to focus on before progressing on to the 3x and 4x tables. I will put some fun websites and games on the class website page for you to try with your child/children. You don’t need to bring anything back into school as such but anything you choose to do would be great to share in class.


A great website is Top Marks


BBC has some good ones too


To extend your child, discuss division. It's the inverse of multiplication.

If you know 3x5=15 then you know 15 divided by 5 is 3 and 15 divided by 3 is 5.


15 ÷  5 =         try wording it by saying - how many 5s are in 15 - then count up in 5s.

5 10 15. 3 lots of 5 are in 15.
