This week the children are focusing on using three important homophones: 

There - the location 

I need you to sit over there. 

Their - belonging 

It is their house. 

They're - contraction for they are

They're really good at learning their spellings. 

The children will learn to use them correctly and in the right context.

Home Learning

Spellings are given out on a Monday related to a specific pattern or rule. Children are then quizzed the following week. Every few weeks children will be given a mixture of spellings from the previous weeks. Spelling shed is a useful tool to practise spellings.
 
Children are given a times table to practise weekly. This is also set on Monday.

How you can help

Please continue to support your child by encouraging them to read widely and frequently. They should also be discussing their reading with an adult on a regular basis. You could use the questions in their reading diary for ideas. Ensuring that your child is regularly practicing their multiplication tables is also incredibly beneficial for them. There are lots of ways that these facts can be practised; chanting, singing, games, apps, web sites or simply writing them out.
