Reading - every night from their classroom browsing box.
Spelling - from the STEPS programme. Each week your child will bring a list from the programme to learn and these are tested within the programme. I would like to also see these words put into a sentence each in the homework book.
Maths - There are lots of activities on the blog that link in with what we are doing in the class. For activities that are not on the computer you can play maths games such as King of the Mountain. This is a dice game; roll 2 dice and add, subtract, divide, multiply the numbers together. You can also use playing cards in a similar way. The emphasis is quick recall of basic facts and just knowing the basic facts to 10 and 20.
Our School is an Enviro School and are reducing the photocopy sheets of work that get glued into books that are often not completed or get lost.
It is the 21st Century!
