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 5 & 6 there will be a weekly SPAG (Spelling, Grammar and Punctuation) challenge as well as a Maths challenge. Creative homework tasks may also be sent home during some weeks or a table of creative challenges may be uploaded for children to complete at their leisure throughout a half term.
We expect Year 5 & 6 to be reading their Guided Reading books or books of their own choice for approximately 30 minutes a day as well as regularly practising spellings throughout the week. Please encourage your child to regularly log into their Times Table Rockstar account too.
Please contact school if you have any questions in relation to anything mentioned above.
