Pre-learning Term 3 


This term our learning project is called ‘Hola Mexico.’ Below are the optional additional tasks for homework. These tasks are optional and therefore can be competed throughout the term if your child wishes. If handed in they will be celebrated via display however they will not be marked.


  • Which part of Mexico would you prefer to live in, and why? Write down your ideas ready to share with the class.


  • Find out about Mexican flowers, trees and animals. Some are very different to those found in the UK! Record what you learnt in an interesting way.


  • Research popular Mexican cuisine and have a go at making one (with parental supervision).


  • Plan an imaginary trip or holiday to Mexico. Look at holiday brochures or research online. How many ways are there to get there? How long would it take? How much would it cost? Make an itinerary for your trip, showing what you would like to see and do while you are there.


  • Design and build a Maya temple using junk materials, such as cardboard boxes, newspaper and card.


  • How much do other people know about Mexico? Create questions for a fun quiz and try it out on family or friends.


  • Find out more about Maya hieroglyphs and symbols. Can you write your name or a short message to a friend?


This year all children will receive CGP books for Maths, GPS and Comprehension. This will focus on pre-learning tasks as well as consolidating learning. The content within the books are designed to be similar to SATs style questions. The expectations for the books will be explained weekly and will be available on the class pages.


Maths homework will be set weekly via – here pupils will be consolidating and pre-learning topics taught in class. This is due to be completed each Wednesday. Pupils without a device at home will be given the opportunity to complete this at school. Once their set tasks are complete they can compete on Live Mathletics, trying to get their name on the leader boards enhancing their mathematical skills further.

Spellings with be set on a Friday after a pre-spelling test and teaching of the spelling patterns. Children will then be tested again on the following Friday in Class. To support the learning of the spellings, here are some possible activities you could use:
1.          Find out the meaning of 6 words and write their definitions in your books.

2.         Use 6 words in a sentence correctly.

3.         Find synonyms for 6 of the words in this week’s spelling list.

4.         Write out each word in this week’s spelling list 5 times.

5.         Look, write, cover, check for each word.

Pre-learning tasks are an opportunity for pupils to gain an advantage in their future learning. For example if we were learning about adding fractions then the tasks set the week before would be about adding fractions, and pupils would have had an exposure to the learning area before we have a lesson in it.
