2. School and Class Routines • Weekly timetable • Most subjects will be covered weekly. Literacy and maths everyday. • Morning routine • PPA timings • Wednesday afternoon – Mrs Clare • Tuesday afternoon – Miss Bakewell

4. Learn Its • A ‘Learn It’ is a number fact that is learnt so well that it can be recalled instantly. It includes the entire 1 digit add 1 digit answers as well as the 1 digit multiplied by 1 digit answers. • The pupils should know all ‘Learn Its’ as well as they know their own name! When they recall these facts there is no thinking time. • They should also know the opposite and inverse, e.g. is they know 2+3=5, they also rapidly know 3+2=5, 5-2=3 and 5-3=2. • When this is achieved it opens the door to a whole new world of numeracy e.g. 80 x 70 is easy to do if you know 8 x 7.

5. Learn Its If you would like copies please ask Miss Jeavons/ or me and I will get them from her

6. How to Support your child in Maths… it’s easier than you think! Look out for WILF lists in the classroom! Use the games and ideas in the Maths Leaflets – maths can be fun! Look for online games and apps too. Show your child maths in real life all the time, especially shopping, measuring/weighing and time – this is free 1:1 Tuition on problem solving and needs no fancy maths knowledge! Recite number facts (LEARN ITS) at every opportunity – the sooner they are learnt, the more confident a child feels in every lesson. Top attainment is almost always linked to knowledge of number bonds and times tables at the age appropriate level.

7. Spellings in KS2 Spelling can be really tricky for some children! Let’s have a go! How would you spell fish? Obviously it’s ghoti! gh= f as in cough o = i as in women ti = sh as in function Hum…not so easy is it!

8. FACT: excellent readers are often poor spellers as they have missed the stage of needing to ‘sound out’ every word. Therefore, when it comes to spelling, they need to resort to using phonics as best they can eg is it t-h-a-y- or t-h-e-y?Maggie Snowling :professor of psychology at York University and a vice-president of the British Dyslexia Association.

9. So…… to help our children, we are going to teach spellings in ABILITY groups instead of AGE groups!We will have 4 groups and 3x week, after break, the children will explore spellings through investigation and games. They might bring their spelling investigation home as part of their Shared Learning At Home. If you have any questions about the groups, please pop along to Mrs Claxton!

10. Shared Learning at Home • Expectation is that each child will complete an hour and a half a week. • Homework will be set on a Thursday • Reading daily – recorded in journal checked on a Monday • Maths games or activity • Topic ‘a la carte menu’ • If your child finds a task difficult please do come and speak to me.
