Homework

Welcome to your Homework page. This has been designed to help you continue your learning whilst school is shut. We will post activities daily for Writing and Maths. There will also be a Homework Map that contains more fun and varied activities for you to do which will be posted weekly to support your cross curricular learning. Please record the work you complete in an exercise book.

 

Each day, please challenge yourself to:

  • Practise your reading skills on Read Theory or read for 10 minutes
  • Practise your times tables in TT Rockstars
  • Use Hit the Button to practise your mental maths skills
  • Choose a spelling challenge (from the spelling grid) to help you learn your spelling words
  • Complete the Writing Challenge
  • Complete the Maths Challenge

 

Each week, we expect you to:

  • Practise your spellings (there is a Beginner, Competent, Proficient or Expert version) using the Spelling Bingo Map
  • Complete a range of activities from the Weekly Homework Map

 

As a bonus, you could also complete another task from the Roman Homework Map or a ‘Surprise Me Homework’. Completing activities and tasks can earn Maple class an extra treat! So come on, let’s beat the other classes! 

 

Please don't worry if you find any of the challenges tricky, just make a note and we can go through these together when we are back at school. Our aim is to provide you with activities to consolidate your learning. 

 

I will be updating this part of the website with exciting new challenges every day for you to choose from. Thank you for your patience. We look forward to seeing you back at school soon! :)

Easter Holidays

 

Hi,

 

As it is the Easter Holidays for the next 2 weeks, everyone at Fir Tree have agreed that we will not be setting daily work or activities as we would like you to spend some time with your families (and having a bit of a break from school work).

 

We’ll be back on Monday 20th April for some more Online Learning. I know that some of you will carry on with different bits and pieces over the holidays because you are fantastic. Remember there is the Easter Homework Menu. If you would like to get in touch or send examples of work through, I will still be contactable and responding to messages.

 

Thank you for all the fantastic work and effort you have put into the last two weeks of Online Learning – I’ve been super impressed.

 

We wish you all a happy and safe Easter.

 

Maple Team
