Homework

Homework Diary: to help you become independent and to prepare you for high school, you'll  issued with a homework diary in which you're responsible for recording all the homework you're set weekly.  You'll be asked to share your diary with your parents and carers so that they are aware of work that needs to be completed and by when. In addition to this we ask that your parents sign the diary each week and that you hand it in every Monday.

In a typical week you may be set one piece of Literacy and one piece of Numeracy homework on Friday, which is usually handed in the following Wednesday morning. French is often set by Madam Hughes on Monday to be handed in on the following Monday.

Once a term you'll be set a project. This is a longer piece of homework where you will have a few weeks, usually around half a term, to complete research around a given topic and present what you've discovered in a way you feel is most appropriate. You will be given an outline of the project with key dates on, these are dates when we need to see what you've  done so far and a final deadline date. When you are working on a piece of project homework, you will only have one piece of homework each Friday.

Homework tasks are generally set on area that we have been studying in class recently. Please don't hesitate to speak to your class teacher if you feel you're struggling with any aspect of your homework.

Reading:

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more you learn, the more places you’ll go.”— Dr. Seuss, “I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!”

As throughout school you should continue to read to an adult for at least ten minutes three times each week.

Spelling: You will receive spellings to learn each Friday and will be tested on them on the following Friday.

Times Tables: It is really important that you become fluent with multiplication tables  now and you should continue to practise these regularly, there are lots of fun games in our Maths Zone that can help you!
