Homework is set every Friday. Everything children need is here:

Times Tables - Children should aim to practise on Times Table Rock Stars at least 5 minutes a day. Their username and passwords are stuck in the back of their reading diaries. Log in into TTRS here. In preparation for the National Multiplication Times table Check in June, please encourage your child to practice on the single player > soundcheck mode

Want a different way to practise for the Multiplication Check? Try Math Shed.


📚Independent Reading - Aim to listen to your child read for at least 10 minutes a day. Children will have a banded reading book and a self-chosen book from our school or class library. Please ensure that reading diaries and banded reading books are brought into school each day.

🎯Spelling -  Children learn a new spelling rule each week and are asked to complete the matching activities set on Spelling Shed. We have a spelling test each Thursday. Log in to Spelling Shed here. 

No new spelling rules have been introduced on Friday 24th May. Children are encouraged to revise spelling words and rules we have learnt so far. Children have been set a Spelling Shed assignment with a range of words but they can also revisit rules by clicking 'Play' on Spelling Shed. We work on Stage 3 and 4.

Handwriting

As a school, we have adopted the Nelson Handwriting scheme. Students are already making fantastic progress with their letter formation and joined handwriting. Whilst children may begin to select and develop their own styles in later years, to meet the expected standard in English, they must use the correct letter formation and join their handwriting.

Dots indicate 'breaks' where the pencil is lifted and no join is made to the next letter.

Further information from the schemes creator, Oxford Owls, is available on their website. They provide example activities but, should you have further questions about how to support your child at home, please speak to Miss Mitchell or Mrs Bridge.

📖 Thank you to everyone who supported our World Book Day celebrations. There was a fantastic range of costumes on display and so much excitement about books to be had. Children went home with a £1 voucher which can be spent on a special £1 World Book Day book or be used to save £1 off any book. More information about these (and a downloadable voucher if it didn't make it home) can be found on the World Book Day website. Don't forget, Ravensdale will be having its own Book Fair at the end of this term and vouchers can be used at this event too.
