frownWelcome to the Kestrel's Class Page!frown

 

 

 

Our Spring Term Topic Is the Bright Lights,Big City.

 

 

 

This term our topic will be based on Liverpool. We will be looking at authors from Liverpool and literature about Liverpool. We will also be focusing on the buildings and skyline in our art lessons. 

 

Below you will find information regarding the spring term curriculum. At the bottom of the page, you will find links to Maths games.

 

 

Online SPAG and Read Theory Practise

 

The children have received passwords to access the SPAG and Read Theory practise questions at home. Their passwords will either be stapled to the front inside cover of their homelink books or stapled to the front of the homework sheet that they received at the end of the Spring term. If the children could complete SPAG and Read Theory practise regularly at home, this would really support their progress at school. The tests do not take very long and the programmes enable the tracking of their progress both at school and at home, so you can see how they are getting on.

 

Thank you smiley

Useful websites:

Below is a list of websites that may be useful when practicing times tables and place value.

 

When practicing times tables, as well as the websites above, you could play games, sing songs, make up rhymes, or use flash cards. Remember that children should be able to recall facts out of order without working up from 1 x something.

 

We are currently learning about place value in class. Below is a link to the place value game that children have been playing in class - it may be useful to play this game at home to increase your child's confidence with value and support their learning in class. 

 

There are a variety of ideas on the internet! You could try typing 'fun ways to learn multiplication tables' or 'fun ways to learn place value' into a search engine. The key to learning times table facts is regular practice in short bursts. For example, on the way home, in the car, or when going up to bed.
