Northgate Homework: Friday, March 9th

Friday 9th March – Thursday 15th March 2018

Any misconceptions will be addressed after the children complete their homework tasks. These may be done through whole class, small group or individual sessions. 

KS2 Comprehension pages 12 & 13 – Daddy Fell Into the Pond

If your child finds the text particularly tricky, please read it to them, and ask them to answer the questions. Being able to understand and answer the questions that is the focus here. Remember to use the glossary at the bottom of the page!

KS2 Maths Grid Method Division Worksheet

This requires the children to use and apply the number skills they have been using this week. The children have been using the bus stop method to divide 2 digit and in some cases, 3 digit numbers. This also involves them using their multiplication knowledge. I have made a differentiated sheet for each group, with an example at the top to refresh their knowledge.

Maths - Please encourage your child to use Sumdog at home. Also, the children are practicing applying their multiplication skills across different elements of Mathematics. In order to secure your child’s confidence in their times tables, this game is very useful: https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button. It can be played on a computer or tablet (you don’t need to download the app), and allows the children to select the tables they want to practice.

Spelling - Spellings have been added to your child’s new spelling book. These will be tested on Thursdays.

Reading – Please continue to read often with your child. If your child is a free reader, it is important they read a variety of text types and different authors – to continue to secure their enjoyment of reading. The children have access to a range of texts within our class library, which they are encouraged to use when changing their books. They are welcome to read a book from home within school.

Thank you for your continued support.
