Homework week ending 21st September
In our maths lessons we have been adding two digit numbers using partitioning ( eg 47 becomes 4 tens and 7 ones), regrouping (exchanging ten ones for a 10 stick) and ‘make ten’ (moving up to the next multiple of 10). Your child has been given a sheet with calculations on it. Please spend a maximum of 30 minutes on this maths homework. If your child is struggling, please make a note of this on the work.
Above are examples of how your child could complete the calculation 37 + 28. They all involve partitioning 28 into 2 tens and 8 ones.
Thank you for reminding your child to return their reading record book to school. Please continue to read with your child at home. 23 children returned their books this week. Thank you to the parents who helped their children to cover their books. Reading books have been changed where necessary. Please return the reading books to school when your child has finished reading them to keep our stocks at a good level for other children to choose from.
Please help your child to spell the words for week 3 on the spelling sheet. We have been working on these words in class. There will be a spelling test of some of the words next week. If your child is struggling to spell all the words, please focus only on the words your child is most likely to need in their independent writing.
We have used spelling Frame in school to support the learning of our weekly spellings, and the children have enjoyed using the site. Please encourage your child to use the site at home.
Have a good weekend,
Mrs Furniss and Mrs Garnett
