A homework menu will be sent home at the start of every term. The dates for the homework to be handed in can be found at the bottom of the menu.
Spellings will be sent home on Friday to be tested the following Friday.
As you are aware there is an expectation that children read at least 3 times a week at home; to support the reading that they do at school. We ask that children read books, newspapers, magazines etc. and we would like this to be recorded in their reading diaries. Reading is essential for a child’s development and children who read for enjoyment regularly, not only perform better in reading tests than those who don’t, but also develop a broader vocabulary, increased general knowledge and a better understanding of other cultures. Learning to read is about listening and understanding as well as working out what’s printed on the page. Reading records will be collected in and checked on Thursdays.
Times tables will be tested on a Friday. (See below)
Dojos will be earned for completion of homework, reading at home and accuracy in tests.
