Spellings and Maths Homework:

For their homework, the children need to complete weekly spelling and maths assignments on EdShed.  These are available to complete from Monday to Sunday, and will be checked on the following Monday.  I have uploaded the year’s spelling lists to EdShed.  These should update automatically each week with the new list.  Children should complete at least four spelling games online a week as well as completing the assigned Maths homework.  Please email me if you require your child’s login and password.  The spelling overview is also stuck inside your child’s homework book for reference.  There will also be a termly project to complete.  This will be linked to the term’s topic and will allow the children to independently explore an area of interest.
