Spelling Homework: Set on Wednesday - words to learn are logged by the children into their homework diaries. The children are responsible for learning their chosen words and 'Look, Say, Cover, Write and Check' sheets are available to the children if they would like more focused practice. The children can access these to take home.
Maths Homework: Abacus homework is set on Tuesday to be completed online by next Tuesday. Times tables will be tested and new ones set on a Thursday. Additionally, the monthly 'Golden 100' times table test will usually be set on the first Friday of the month.
Reading Homework: Set on Wednesday – this starts off as 30 mins reading each week and increases during the year to 45 mins and then 1 hour. This is a minimum weekly requirement and we obviously hope the children will be completing more reading for pleasure. Please sign your child’s homework diary to show us they have completed it – thank you. If you or your child want to keep a record of extra reading, it may also be written into their homework diary. Signatures are checked on the next Wednesday.
Learning Logs: 3 Learning Logs will be given during the course of the year – one each term; these support our learning in History, Geography and independent study.
If you have any problems with your child completing their homework, please write us a note in their homework diary and we will help to sort them out – thanking you in advance for all your hard work and support with your child’s homework; it is much appreciated.
