Homework 6.2.20



This week we have been learning some of the spellings from the Year 3/4 Spelling List. These words are often spelt wrong in children's writing due to the "tricky bits" in them. Children may benefit from practising writing the words before trying spelling shed and colouring or decorating the "Tricky Bits" in the words to help them to remember. This is technique we use regularly in school so the children will be familiar with it!

Group 1 - breath, business, caught, different, exercise, extreme, medicine, possession, although, thought

Group 2 - business, although, thought, different, exercise

Group 3 - bone, stone, alone, cone, phone, lonely



The homework this week is an activity for the children to practice their knowledge of the relationship between multiplication and division.

In maths this week we have been learning about partitioning numbers to help us solve multiplication questions. For example:

The children have been set a task to answer similar questions to this one. They will need to make jottings on paper, like the one above to help them solve the questions. Some of the children have been set a second task to practice their times table facts.
