Summer Term 2022

Dear Parents and Carers, 

 

I am very excited about our history theme for this term: Ancient Greece. Please find at the top of this page a document with your child’s learning linked to this fantastic theme as well as an overview of the subjects that cannot be taught through the theme including maths and science.   

 

How can you support your child’s learning?

Each week your child will have the following maths, reading and spelling homework to complete: 

 

Maths:

Maths homework will continue to be linked to MyMaths. MyMaths has tutorials linked to the homework given as well as fun games to practise mathematical skills. MyMaths is set every Friday and is due on the following Thursday. Please encourage your child to complete their homework. The children will be able to mark their homework straight away; if your child has scored below 70% they are required to try again.

 

Reading:

Please encourage your child to read regularly at home (at least four times per week) and sign their Home-School Contact Book to acknowledge this (these books are checked by an adult every Monday. Children who have not had their record signed at least four times will miss part of their lunchtime to read in the classroom. If your child reads from our school scheme, their four reads must be from this school book and preferably they should be reading aloud to an adult at home as this will support their fluency. 

Spellings: Please encourage your child to practise their 'Common Exception Spellings' on Spelling Shed.  

 

Maths Passports:

If your child has a Maths Passport target, it is important that they practise their targets at home as these mental maths skills will support them with all areas of maths in school and for their transition to secondary school. Targets, guidance sheets and links to online games can be found on the school website. Please note that we aim for children to know all of their times tables to 12x12 by the end of Year 4, and to have completed the last of the Maths Passports, Atlantis, by the end of Year 5. 

 

Finally, if you ever have any concerns or questions, please do not hesitate to contact me via email, hawks@lydbrook.gloucs.sch.uk, or by phoning the school. 

 

Best wishes,

Mrs Hughes
