Home learning will be handed out to your child every Friday. This will consist of spellings, English and Maths.
English and Maths home learning will normal be short tasks but may be, on occasion, project based over a number of weeks.
English and Maths home learning needs 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.
Your child is expected to spend about 20 minutes each on their English and Maths home learning.
They will be tested on their spellings the following Friday. Please ensure their yellow spelling book and home learning book is in school on this day.
Your child is also likely to have Learn – Its, number bonds and times tables to learn. They will normally be tested on their times tables the following Thursday.
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. He will normally be available before 8.45am or immediately at the end of the school day. Alternatively, you can make arrangements to meet with him via the main office.
Thank you for your support.
