In addition to spellings, reading and times tables, children will be issued with a piece of English and maths each week. This will take many different forms, but it will always support or extend classwork. It will be given out on WEDNESDAY and MUST be returned no later than the following Monday. Year 5 children have a homework book. Year 6 children are working on tasks from the CGP books. A pencil should be used. The standard of presentation in homework tasks is expected to be is as high as in class tasks. If there are any queries about the work then CHILDREN should talk to me about them AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
Homework will be set to enhance and consolidate children’s learning. We will be encouraging children to adopt a love of reading across a wide range of text types.
In addition to texts read in school, children will have a reading book which they should read at home, and record in their planner. Please support children in their reading at home (which, in addition to books, can include comics, e-books, magazines, newspapers, leaflets etc.) Please can children aim to read at least 3 times a week at home and have their planner signed by an adult. This will have a huge impact on children’s progress. As you know, spellings will be tested, and new spellings set, each Monday. Not only should children learn the spelling of the word, but discuss the meaning with an adult. Your support in this is greatly appreciated.
Class 3 pupils will continue to contribute an adventurous word to our ‘Word of the Week’ wall on Monday, to help extend our vocabulary choices. On occasional Fridays, there will be Times Tables tests or a maths based task.
If homework is not completed on time, unless there is a very good reason they will complete it in break times.
