Our Term 5 Timetable:

Our Termly Overview:

Children need to bring a water bottle into school every day and they can bring in a healthy snack (fruit or vegetables only) for break time. Our PE lessons will take place on a Tuesday and Thursday so please ensure that your children have the appropriate PE kit on these days. We ask that all clothing is clearly named.

#### Home Learning

Here is a menu of homework ideas for the next term. Please can your child complete a minimum of 4 tasks over the course of the term. Homework is to be returned on Thursdays. It will be marked and given back to your child the next day (Friday).

Work is to be presented neatly in books. All writing is to be written in pencil please, unless you have a pen licence.

### KIRFs - Key Instant Recall Facts - Term 4

By the end of this half term, children should know the following facts. The aim is for them

to recall these facts instantly.

TOP TIPS

The secret to success is practising little and often. Use time wisely. Can you practise these KIRFs while walking to school or during a car journey? You don’t need to practise them all at once: perhaps you could have a fact of the day. If you would like more ideas, please speak to your child’s teacher.

Use what you already know – Use number bonds to 10 (e.g. 7 + 3 = 10) to work out related number bonds to 20 (e.g. 17 + 3 = 20).

Use practical resources – Make collections of 20 objects. Ask questions such as, “How many more conkers would I need to make 20?”

Play games – You can play number bond pairs online at https://mathszone.co.uk/number-facts/number-bonds-to-20/funky-mummy-ict-games/
