Happy New Year to you, we hope you all had a lovely Christmas holiday!
We have had a very busy first week back. In English, we have been starting to lean about 'Explanation Texts', and the children have done lots of work about using causal conjunctions and brackets for parenthesis. We will look at more features next week and find out how the features are used.
In Maths we have been learning methods of multiplication and division, starting to learn for formal written methods for larger numbers. The children really need to know times tables well to be able to make good progress. Could you please make this a big focus at home to support them with their learning. The children enjoy using TTRS and also activities such as daily 10, and hit the button that you can find on line free. Just chanting tables and giving quick fire questions when in the car or walking help the facts to stick. Thank you for your help with this.
Spelling words to be given out on Monday( Some sets have been missed out and will catch up later due to holidays)
