Curriculum Map Term 1

 

Homework

Term 1 Homework Grid

All children will have a homework book. Each week, children will be given a SPAG mat and a Maths mat to complete; this will be taken in on a Monday and returned, with the new week’s tasks, on a Wednesday. 

 

In addition to this, children will also have a pick and mix grid of homework tasks linked to our learning in the foundation subjects. All children need to complete a selection of these activities over the course of the term. Whilst it is recommended that they complete one each week, it may be that some topic-based tasks take place over several weeks.

 

All children are also  expected to read and practice their times tables on a daily basis. Reading records are checked by adults in school on a regular basis; children are expected to take responsibility for ensuring that their reading records are filled in every time they read with an adult.

 

Spellings

Year 3 Spelling Overview

Year 4 Spelling Overview

Our weekly spellings are set using Ed Shed. Your child will be sent home with a login for Ed Shed at the beginning of Term 1. Whilst we will have timetabled sessions each week on Ed Shed in school as part of the teaching of spelling, it is beneficial for children to access this at home on a regular basis if possible. This may be in addition to other practice spelling methods, such as Look, Cover, Write, Check.

 

 

 

P.E.
Please ensure that P.E. kits are available in school all week. We will be taking part in PE sessions on Tuesdays and Fridays, however this is subject to change .
