Supporting your child with homework/ revision
From January 2020, the children in Team Eagle have homework set from CGP question books. Each week they will have set homework to complete and hand in.
We understand that many parents may find it difficult to support their child with homework, so below are links to different websites that may provide information to help:
For mathematics, TTRockstars provides quick-fire practise of times table facts. This is available online or via a mobile app. Alternatively, the Effective Maths Quiz site is available for children to access at mathsquiz.net. The children have used this site in school in accompaniment to their Effective Maths lessons and should be familiar with how the website works and what the login details are.
Also, the BBC Revisewise website for KS2 contains a range of useful information and activities to support understanding and practice. Content is grouped into 3 categories: ‘Number’, ‘Shape, Space and Measures’ and ‘Handling Data’. Within each section, select ‘read’ to find guides to help explain key understanding.
Read Theory provides access to a variety of online reading comprehension activities. Children complete comprehensions to earn ‘knowledge points’. Also, teachers can assess the accuracy of children’s answers and use the programme to diagnose areas of difficulty.
Parents should note that as this is a website that provides free access to schools, it does not have the same level of restrictions/security settings in place as Mathletics/TTRockstars and it is possible that ‘pop-ups’ may appear, showing adverts to products that have been searched previously through the device.
Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling
Again, BBC Revisewise KS2 contains a range of useful information.
This primary school website has also made numerous PowerPoint presentations available, each of which help to explain grammatical terms and vocabulary with examples and activities.
