Home learning is under review at this time, so anything I write here might be subject to change depending on the outcome.
In order for the children to be well prepared for the end of year expectations, they should be reading for 30 minutes per day. Most children said that they read when they go to bed, so were happy with this. Reading regularly will increase their stamina, and, as long as they are reading age-appropriate books, develop their vocabulary knowledge and understanding of sentence structure.
It is important that the children know the maths facts for their year group, as it will benefit them in class. It is vital that children can quickly recall all the x table facts to 12 x 12, and the associated division facts. Nearly all aspects of maths they do will require them to use this knowledge. I have asked that the children do 15mins an evening.
All children are given 10 spellings each week to learn.
All children are given up to 6 words to discuss at home. They could be synonyms of each other, they could be subject specific, or from the novel we are reading in class.
