Task 2 – Maths

MangaHigh – The children have been looking at subtraction this week. There are 4 activities for the children to have a go at and try and achieve gold status!

If you are unable to get on to MangaHigh at home, please see Mr Pattison on Monday and have a go during lunchtime.

Ongoing tasks

Times tables: Keep practising those times table facts – you need to know all facts up to 12 x 12 inside out, at the click of your fingers! Make sure you are rehearsing these facts regularly, preferably several times a week.

Reading: Remember that you should be reading on a daily basis at home, and should be discussing this reading with an adult – talking about the text, commenting on the author’s purpose, noticing particular features of certain genres, etc. In reading record books, please could children/parents write a comment about this reading.

Spellings: Remember to spend time daily learning your spellings – will you earn both of your raffle tickets this week?

If you are unable to access the home learning or are finding it difficult, please speak to either Mr Pattison or Miss Bal about it.
