Rockstars/ Spelling Shed/ Mathletics


Spend 10 minutes on each of the websites below: 


TT Rockstars -

Why don't you try and get your speed down by 0.1! 


Spelling shed -

New spellings will be set every Monday. Once you have done the games for those spellings - work hard learning some new ones.


Mathletics -

There are loads of tasks and activities to do. Just work your way through them. I can see lots of people have been working really hard! Keep it up.


If you haven't already, why not give numbots a go!

Guided Reading

Starting this week, guided reading will be slightly different. Instead of 3 levels there are going to be 4. Level 4 is going to be for the children who really want to challenge and push themselves. You will also only be looking at one text for the whole week. This is your guided reading timetable: 


Level 1-4 (level 1 is the easiest and level 4 the hardest)

Monday: Read the text and underline unfamiliar vocabulary.

Tuesday: Research definitions of any unfamiliar vocabulary.

Wednesday: Questions on the text.

Thursday: Questions on the text.

Friday: Mark your answers.
