Red Class – Summer Holiday Homework

Over the summer it is important to do a ‘little bit’ of work to keep your skills up ready for the new year.  This doesn’t mean having to do something every day, but over the week you should;

 

  1. Read to an adult who can ask you questions about what you are reading. I have attached a copy of the year 3/4 and year 5/6 reading lists – see how many of these books you can read.  Remember, you can borrow them from your library for free and you might also find some in charity shops.

 

  1. Times tables – keep up the good work over the summer. Make learning them into a game, you could even challenge your family to beat you against the clock!

 

  1. Write a diary of the things you get up to. This is a lovely way to remember all the special times you have with your family over the summer and practise your handwriting, spelling and punctuation. You could include pictures of the places you visit.

 

  1. I have put the ‘booster’ pack on as homework over the summer – there are 75 tasks, but I’m not expecting you to complete all 75!  Instead, I would like you to concentrate on areas that you feel you need to practise – that might mean concentrating on your tables, on data handling or on the four operations.  The whole point of this is to make sure you get off to a flying start next year!

 

Have a super summer holiday!  See you in September,

Red Class Learning Log – 12th July 2019

On Tuesday next week, Red Class will be taking part in the Global Rocket Launch – an attempt to break the world record for most rockets launched on one day!  We will make our own paper rockets in school to fire off on the field.  For homework I would like you to draw a design for your rocket – it could be based on one of the rockets we have been learning about or it could be one of your own design.  If you have a rocket and launcher at home, you could bring it in to add to our collection and attempt on the record.  If you would like to find out more about this you can take a look at the website www.rocketcenter.com/apollo50/GlobalLaunch where you’ll also find instructions to make a variety of rockets at home.

For spellings we are focusing on words based on words with silent letters for Year 3 and adverbials of frequency and possibility for Year 4.  Your test will be on Wednesday due to our trip on Thursday.

Mymaths has been set for everyone. We really do notice the difference in class when you complete this work, so keep it up!  Remember, if you have work outstanding and would like to catch up – begin with this week’s work and work backwards!

Times Tables: Our usual test this week will focus on 7, 8 and 9times tables.  This will also be on Wednesday.

Best wishes,

Miss Cafferkey
