Homework:

Learners in KS2 will have weekly Multiplication and spelling tests. For their homework they are expected to prepare for this by practicing the spellings and their target times tables. We also hope that children are using Times Tables Rock stars website to help speed of recall of these vital learning facts. All learners should also be reading regularly at home and talking about the books they have experienced with adults or siblings.

 

Home learning project:

Create a model of a planet in our solar system, find out about your planet and record your facts on the model. We will use these to make a giant model solar system in out learning base.
