Your children have been working hard at school and by now they should be well settled into their new classes. New friendships will have been formed and the routine of the working day established. We have included in this newsletter some suggested worksheets to reinforce the teaching they will cover in school and to ensure they have complete understanding.
KS1 EnglishThe correct use of words and a varied vocabulary are essential to enable your child to write interesting stories. All children love a story so try reading aloud to them and increase their spoken vocabulary.
KS2 EnglishThere are many forms of writing from creating imaginative stories, writing instructions and letter writing. Make sure your children have a wide vocabulary on which to build so that they can compose interesting stories.
KS3 EnglishAt this age group it is important that writing skills are developed and that children can use compound sentences correctly. A varied use of words helps to make all writing more interesting and stimulating to read.
KS2 maths A quick maths revision session is always more beneficial than longer sessions. Use the revision paper to find where your child needs help and revision. Decimals can be confusing so make sure that your child understands these.
Foundation Stage Pictures are always a useful introduction to learning to read new words. Pictures will also help the children associate the names with the objects. Have fun together with all these papers.
