Homework & Spellings
Children will receive homework, spellings, and home reading. Homework will alternate every term. Homework in Term 1, 3 and 5 will be a homework project.
Term 2,4 & 6 - Weekly homework:
In terms 2,4 & 6 the children will have weekly homework. The homework will be a short task and should only take between 20 and 30 minutes. The homework will be provided to support the learning that takes place in school. Above you will find a page called ‘learning support’ this page will provide support for key terminology and mathematical methods we use in class. Homework should not act as a source of stress - if despite best efforts your child is struggling to complete their homework, please contact our class email and I will support your child with this in school.
Term 1, 3 & 5 - Homework Projects:
The homework project will be relevant to the learning that takes place in school. A letter will go out at the start of Term 1, 3 & 5 with details on the homework project. The children will have several weeks to complete their homework project and they will share it in school towards the end of the term. In the terms in which the children are set homework projects they will not have weekly homework but should still read and practice spellings at home.
Spellings will take place weekly. Children will be provided with a small yellow spelling book which will contain their weekly spellings and their results of their weekly spelling test. The children will practice these in school daily but will also benefit from revisiting them at home.
Times Table Practice:
All the children can practice their times tables at home using 'Times Table Rockstars'. This can be download as an app or be accessed via the internet. All children have logins for Times Table Rockstars. If your child has forgotten their login, please email the class page and I will provide you with a new one.
The children will all have a reading level and be sent home with books at this level. The children should read as frequently to help the progression of their reading skills. When reading it is helpful if the children can be questioned on what they read to ensure they develop their comprehension skills. Some examples of questions can be found below:
