Welcome to Purple Class Page
This term our topic is The Anglo- Saxons and Vikings.
Have a look at the topic web to find out some of the things we'll be learning this term.
Homework in Purple Class usually follows this pattern.
English is set on a Monday and marked in class the following Monday. This is usually a reading comprehension and their individual key word spellings.
Maths is set on a Thursday and marked in class the following Thursday. This is usually a page of mental maths and some arithmetic practice. There will also be a mental maths test on a Thursday.
There is a weekly spelling test from the spelling lists below every Friday. A few words from previous weeks will also be tested to help children retain previously learnt spellings.
It is also expected that children will read most nights for about 20 minutes.
It is expected that children will have a quick recall of all tables facts by year 6 as without this they will find a lot of maths difficult this year.
It is important that children who don't know or have a slow recall of tables practise these each day for about 5 minutes- Hit the button is a good app or website for this.
