We have been using column addition and subtraction this week to calculate answers. The sheets I have sent for homework are to develop mental calculation skills to make this work easier and more efficient. Please discourage your child from using their fingers when completing the sheets. There are also a couple of symmetry activities to complete.
Your child has been given a sheet to decide if a word needs an or a preceding it. Although the children tend to use a or an appropriately when speaking, many children make errors in their independent writing.
See spelling sheet given out earlier this week. There will be a spelling test with words from columns 1 and 2 next week. We will begin learning the spellings from column 3 on Monday.
Please continue to read regularly at home with your child. Also, please remind your child to return their reading book to school each week.
Have a good weekend.
Mrs Furniss and Mrs Garnett
