Please encourage your child to read for at least 20 minutes at least five times per week. Please record what you have read in your reading record.
Please use Spellodrome regularly at home.
Complete the questions (making sure you use your squares in your book to show the workings). We will mark this together as a class on Thursday so we can spend time going over any misconceptions or new strategies.

Over the next 2 weeks you must complete an activity/series of activities that total at least 15 points. How you choose to do so is up to you! For example, you may just complete the fifteen-point activity or may choose to do one ten and a five-point activity; you could also choose to do three five-point activities – it is completely your choice! Have a look at the activity menu below:
