Spelling

This week we have been looking at how a root word changes when a suffix is added.

eg make – mak (e) making                cross off the e before adding ing

hop – hopping    double the final single consonant

jump – jumping  no change because there are already two consonants following the vowel

In addition to the words on the spelling list, please help your child to think of different verbs and try adding suffixes to them. Watch out for the ones which don’t follow the rules eg the verb ‘to be’ doesn’t lose the e before adding ing.

Reading

We have started our Victorians topic this half term. The focus is mainly on what life was like for children in Victorian times. Please help your child to research some information about the Victorians in books or on the internet. If the search entry includes KS2 after it, suitable texts should appear for your child to access. The more information and images the children can gather in their minds before we begin writing tasks, the easier it will be for them to record the information when we complete writing tasks in school.

Maths

Please continue to help your child to practise times tables facts for the 2x, 5x and 10x tables if they are not already secure with these facts. Many children can count up in multiples of these numbers, but they struggle to recall facts in a random order eg 8x5 followed by 6x5.

By the end of the academic year, the children will be expected to know multiplication and division facts for the 3x, 4x and 8x tables. There will be a greater focus on times tables in school in the spring term.
