Spellings and KIRF's

Spellings - Below you will find the spelling lists for this half term.  This year I will be asking the pupils to learn their usual weekly spellings and revise a separate spelling rule that they have learnt previously in KS2.  Both lists are also on Spelling Shed and I encourage the pupils to use this tool to learn the spellings in a fun and interactive way.

KIRF's - Key Instant Recall Facts - Below are the Maths facts that the children need to learn during the 1st Autumn Half Term so they can become more fluent with their maths knowledge.  The pupils will be tested on their fluent knowledge of these facts at the end of the half term.

Please find the Termly topic Homework sheet with attached resources for the whole of Autumn Term.  Your child will receive owlets as a reward for completing the tasks outlined on the sheet.  Some activities are based on topics from our Autumn 2 unit, so they will need to leave those for after October Half Term so they have the knowledge needed to complete them.
