Your child should bring their reading wallet, containing their reading diary and reading books, into school every day. It is expected that your child will be heard read at home at least 3 times a week and a comment logged in their diary. Reading diaries will be monitored each day in school. When your child is heard read in school, we will record a comment.
Reading books will be collected in every Thursday and will be changed. If their reading diary shows that they have not read one or any of the books, the book or books will not be changed.
Your child will bring home their Homework each Thursday. This will contain their spellings and a piece of Maths homework. Homework should then be handed in the following Wednesday. It will be marked and comments made accordingly.
Your child will initially receive up to 6 spellings each week in their spelling homework book. Please see the spelling strategies poster inside the spelling book to try out different ways to best learn spellings. It is expected that these words will each be written in a sentence on the lines in their spelling book. Spelling tests will be on a Thursday.
Maths homework will also come home each week. This will include a range of activities to practise mental maths skills. There will be some recording on the sheet but also oral maths. It is really important for your child to become fluent in number facts. Please see the Autumn Term facts overview sheet (inside Maths homework books) of the facts we are learning in the Autumn term.
At the beginning of every term, the children will have activities to choose from based around our curriculum theme. Please see the topic homework sheet to know when the homework is due in.
More details about the school’s homework policy can be found on the school website.
