Home learning will be handed out to your child every Friday. This will consist of spellings, Learn Its and a Times Table target.
In addition, the children will have English and Maths homework and occasionally work linked to their current topic. Occasionally, as an alternative, the class may have a project-based task spread over a number of weeks.
The tasks need to be completed and handed in by the following Wednesday. Thursday is acceptable but not as routine. It is unlikely that any work handed in on the Friday will be marked.
If your child does not attempt their homework, they will be required to do so in their own time on the Friday of that week.
Your child is expected to spend about 20 minutes on each of their chosen tasks.
They will be tested on their times tables throughout the week and spellings every Friday.
In addition to the above, your child is expected to read at least five times a week. This should be recorded in their reading diary by either you or your child. It could simply be the number of pages they have read or,preferably, a comment on their reading or what they think about the book. Please support your child’s learning by spending some time listening to them read and asking them questions about the text. This is invaluable!
Please encourage your child to get in to a regular routine with the above expectations.
If you have any concerns or issues with your child’s home learning please arrange to see Mr Vickery or Mrs Gristock. They will normally be available before 8.45am or immediately at the end of the school day. Alternatively, you can make arrangements to meet with either via the main office.
Thank you for your support.
From Week 1 of the Summer Term, in final preparation for their SATs, all children will have the same randomly selected spellings from their KS2 spelling lists. They will be tested on these during dictation every Friday.
