Spellings and Times Tables
Every Monday, the children will be given spellings and times tables homework to help with their learning. Spellings and times tables will be tested on a Friday.
If your child achieves 100% on their times table test, they will be able to move onto the next times table.
This is the order: 10x, 5x, 2x, 3x, BRONZE, 4x, 8x, 6x, 9s, SILVER, 7s.
Spelling Bee: A whole school competition. The class who shows the greatest improvement to their scores each week wins! The children are tested every Friday. Please scroll to see the Spelling Bee words below, This is optional practice if your child would like a head start to improve their score.
Every Friday, the children will be given a new reading book, which will be due back in school the following Friday.
Please read with your child, preferably at least 3 times a week, and write a comment in their reading diary. Those children who continue to do so will be rewarded at the end of the term. Daily practice with an adult can increase their enthusiasm and help them progress even further. It is also very useful to discuss the books they have read to you to help their reading comprehension. We have put some question suggestions in the front of your child’s home reading diary. At Hogarth we have a policy that states all children should have at least 3 signatures in their diaries per week.
