Homework is set each week on a Friday and is to be completed by the following Friday. A homework blog will be posted on your child’s Purple Mash account, so they have an overview for the week and the weekly spellings.

Children are asked to:

  • Read at home three times per week-children will receive a stamp on their bookmark!
  • Learn weekly spellings which will be available on the blog. Children will be tested on a Friday.
  • Complete weekly tasks on Purple Mash.

Our work- Autumn Term:


In Maths we have been working hard to understand place value, explaining how many tens and ones a number has and applying our knowledge to reasoning problems. We have been learning how to use the column method to add and subtract too. Other units we will be learning in the Autumn are money, multiplication, and division. Children enjoy working through challenges in Maths. We have also been practicing counting in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s so we are ready to learn our times tables.

In English, we have listened to stories from famous authors, such as Roald Dahl and we read the story The Twits as a class. We made Squiggly Spaghetti, but no one dared to eat it!


In Science, children have been keen to find out about living things and their habitats. We were able to go on a mini beast hunt on the school grounds, so that children could explain what they found and note it on their own map they had drawn of the school. Children have been keen to learn about famous inventors and scientists such as Charles Macintosh and Louis Pasteur. 

Keep up the brilliant effort and work Agate class, you are all doing so well!
