Literacy

During your time at home you should focus on the following skills:

To learn all my spellings ( see home school pack)

To learn how to use prefixes and suffixes.

To write stories with detail.

To use adjectives, adverbs and nouns in sentences correctly.

To read with fluency and expression.

To make sure my handwriting is neat, my letters are correctly formed at all times. 

To write sentences that have punctuation such as question marks, exclamation marks and commands.

To use apostrophes in words such as - I'm    Katie's   couldn't  

 

Please read as many times as you can with your child at home. You can listen to some our teachers read bedtime stories too - keep an eye out on Twitter for these upcoming stories!

Numeracy

Whilst your child is working from home we hope that they are having fun doing their maths work.

Here are some skills they should be focussing on whilst working at home:

Times tables- we need to know our 2's, 5's and 10's (eg. 4 x 2= 8)

Dividing by 2, 5 and 10 (eg. 20 ÷ 5 = 4)

Number bonds to 10 and 20

Doubles and halves of numbers to 50.

Reading and writing numbers to at least 100 in numerals and in words
