Homework in Dolphin Class
RWI reading book
Each week the children will bring home a reading book or a ditty sheet or green words to practice that are linked to the reading they have been doing in their daily RWI lessons.  Please read these with your children each day.  The children record the number or reads they do across the week, and they are aiming for at least 5 so they can get the reading reward on a Friday.
We ask that they read their RWI book at least 3 times so that each time they are practicing their sight word recognition, understanding of the story but also their fluency.  The book they bring home should not be challenging for them as the challenge will come in the lessons in school.  The books they bring home are purely to help build fluency, speed and confidence.
Each week the children will bring home a sheet linked to maths that they are learning in class.  Please encourage your children to practice this sheet on their own and they can use physical objects to help for example cubes or counters.
Topmarks - Hit the button game
Please practice number bonds to make 10, number bonds to make 20, doubles to 10, halves to 10, the 10x tables and the 5x tables using these quick fire fluency games.
