Spelling – On Fridays, children will bring home a spelling pattern and keywords to learn. There will be a spelling check on the following Thursday. Please encourage your child to practise their spellings as the week progresses.

Maths - Maths homework will be sent home fortnightly. Homework  focusses on developing mathematical fluency (e.g. number bonds, times tables) as well as containing more open-ended tasks to develop reasoning and problem solving skills.

There will also be a termly ‘Star Challenge’ with clear success criteria and feedback linked to the Star Challenge. Star Challenges are often linked to topics in class and can be completed in ways that follow the children’s individual interests. Star challenges are attached on the main Beech page.
