Homework

SATs Revision Homework: The children have revision books for English and Maths and will be asked to complete a few pages each week.  English to be handed in on Mondays.  Maths to be handed in on Tuesdays.  Please see below for the timetable if you need to check which pages to do.

Spellings: These are given out and tested every Thursday, and will be linked to our current teaching.  The children have a menu of activities to help them practise and they need to bring these in every Tues and Thurs so we can also practise at school.  Some words are chosen to extend children’s vocabulary as well as spelling ability, so children are also expected to find out what any unfamiliar words mean and ensure they can use them in a sentence.

Reading: Children are expected to read on a daily basis and record this in their home-school diary.  We want to foster a love of reading, so this can be books of their choice as well as their school reading book and Bug Club.  Kindles, e-books, magazines, comics, recipe books, newspapers and instructions all count.  In order to develop vital comprehension skills, children also need to regularly talk about what they are reading with an adult.
