Children need to complete nine pieces of homework over the term and the dates for returning these are shown on the homework menu inside their homework books. Return dates are always Tuesdays. Great quality homework is rewarded with Dojos.
A list of spellings are sent out each Thursday and are tested on the following Friday. Children can practise these in their homework books, verbally or using one of the online resources available:
Ztype is a fun website which combines typing skills and spelling. A different link will be sent home with the spellings each week.
Spelling Shed is an excellent website that each child has an account that they can log in with.
Everyone is expected to read at least three times per week. Reading records are checked on a Thursday and Dojos given to those that have met the minimum 3 reads expected.
We strongly encourage pupils to practise their times tables and other basic maths skills at home as much as possible. Each child has a Times Tables Rockstars account and also a Prodigy Maths account to practise these essential skills online.
Our PE days are Monday and Friday, however we expect children to have their PE kit at school at all times as PE days can change at short notice and we may have additional sessions or training for sporting competitions.
