Homework

Reading is a valuable activity that impacts on all aspects of the curriculum and as such we encourage children to read as much as possible. Children are asked to read a minimum of three times a week at home for around 15 minutes.

 

Children’s reading records are checked weekly by the class teachers at KS2 and daily in KS1.

Children will receive sound cards to help them practice at home; maths packs after half term and spellings in the summer term.

 

Key Stage 1 (Year 1/2)

Children will be given a maths game to play at home to help practice core mathematical skills – These will be issued on a Wednesday and are to be returned the following Monday.

 

A list of spellings are issued every Friday for the children to practice at home – They are then tested on the following Friday.

 

Other tasks maybe issued on a needs led basis throughout the year when appropriate.

 

Key Stage 2 (Year 3/4/5/6)


Children will be given a times table / set of number facts to learn and practice at home. These will link directly to the child’s target and will be tested regularly in class. Once a child shows that they are secure in their understanding they will move to the next target.

 

A list of spellings are issued every Friday for the children to practice at home – They are then tested on the following Friday.

 

Each full term classes will set a topic homework that will take the form of an investigation. Children are to work with parents to investigate the area and present their findings in a format of their choosing (this may be written, art work, sculpture etc etc.) At the end of term work will be displayed in the school hall for all children and parents to celebrate. (This will begin after half term).

 

Other tasks maybe issued on a needs led basis throughout the year when appropriate.

 

It is an expectation that all children complete homework tasks set by the given deadlines.
