Home Learning

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. 



Homework Project, from Friday 23rd June 2017.

Year 3/4 Homework Project Summer 2017


You will need to research an aspect of The Titanic. It could be one of the following or a choice of your own. If you decide to choose your own idea, please check its suitability with your class teacher.


  1. The building of the Titanic
  2. Edwardian fashion
  3. Why people were sailing to America
  4. A biography of one of the passengers or crew
  5. Entertainment on board the ship
  6. A report on the disaster
  7. The effect of the disaster on Southampton
  8. Working in the engine rooms
  9. Life in 1st class
  10. Life in 2nd class
  11. Life in 3rd class
  12. Life as one of the crew
  13. Discovering the wreck

You may produce your work in a format of your choice. Here are some examples:

  • An A3 poster
  • A non-chronological report (Newspaper report)
  • An information leaflet
  • A model of the ship or the sinking (must include an explanation or instructions.)
  • A labelled diagram
  • A Power Point presentation
  • A diary
  • A booklet

You will have just less than 4 weeks to complete your project. This is equivalent to a minimum of 3 ½ hours work – you may do more if you wish! Printed text straight off the Internet is not acceptable – it must be in your own words! You may, however, use pictures and photographs off the Internet. Your work will be marked on the presentation and the amount of effort and time you have put into it. You will be rewarded with up to 12 house points. In addition, a Golden Token will be awarded for outstanding work.

You will have access to the Internet and the school library if you need to. These will be made available to you Thursday lunchtimes between 12:20 p.m. and 12:50 p.m. Resources, including paper and colouring pencils will also be available if you need them. If you are having any problems with your project, please come and see either, Mr Vickery or Mrs Sutcliffe.

Your completed project will need to be handed to your class teacher by Wednesday 19th July. Good Luck!
