To begin this academic year, homework will be provided a little differently. Each week, on Friday, class teachers will update their webpages with new homework for that week. We will upload documents for parents to print or view online. If this is not possible then we ask that parents be proactive and request paper copies for their child. However, we are advised to reduce the amount of items being brought into or taken from school.
Homework can not be assessed by staff due to differing input from families at home for various reasons / choices as well as reducing what is sent in and out of school. Therefore we are asking parents / carers to review and support their child's learning each week until we are advised differently. Homework is a great way to top up the learning that has taken place within the classroom. In most cases, staff will send home work related to the topic areas taught within the week or areas that have been covered prior to it being sent home.
Within Year 1 & 2 we will alternate between maths, english and creative homework tasks. Some weeks a table of creative challenges may be uploaded for children to complete at their leisure throughout a half term.
We expect Year 1 & 2 to be reading for at least 10 to 15 minutes a day as well as regularly practising spellings throughout the week (once we begin these).
Please contact school if you have any questions in relation to anything mentioned above.
Ongoing homework for this half term - A Walk on the Wilde Side
I have also sent home some additional homework for half term in paper form. I have sent some cursive letters, number formation and some shape work. It would be great if your child could complete this during the half term.
Thank you for your support.
It is really important that children continue to practise their number and letter formation.
Here you will find some resources that will help you with that at home.
