Homework will be slightly different this year. My first plea is that you read as much as possible at home- find a book that you enjoy and get reading!!!! It helps in all aspects of your learning.
I also ask that you practice any times tables that you are unsure of. If you need your timestables rockstars password please come and see me.
Finally, you will find your weekly homework by clicking on the link below. You can either print it out and take a photo to upload or save the document and type it out and upload. You will all have your own folder to save your work. If you are struggling to access it from home, I will come and help you during a Thursday playtime in the ICT suite.
