Weekly homework tasks:
- Daily reading at home (home reading book) to an adult
- Spellings (tested weekly)
- TT Rockstars
- Half termly learning log (this will be linked to the themes for the half term)
- Optional additional catch up - ‘Read Theory’ (Year 2-Year 6)
Daily reading: Your child will receive a home reading book and record. Please hear your child read at home on a regular basis (ideally 5-10 minutes every day). When your child has finished their book, they need to hand it in to Miss Mitchell or Mrs Layfield who will change it. They are given this opportunity daily. Please note: as books are now having to be placed in quarantine on their return, it may take a little longer to send a new book home. We will do our very best to send a new book home on the same day it is returned, but please forgive us if it takes longer.
Spellings: We use the No Nonsense Spelling scheme in school. We will be learning words in class that follow a particular pattern/rule. These words, along with a range of others, including Year 3 and 4 statutory words and words from previous years (such as high frequency spellings) will be tested each week on a Friday. The words and test dates for each week are in the spelling booklets which have been sent home. A copy can also be found on this page.
TT Rockstars / times tables: Please encourage your child to learn all of the times tables (up to 12x12) and their related division facts. This will help your child in several aspects of mathematics. All children have been give a login for Times Table Rock Stars but please feel free to practise in whichever way you feel suits your child. There will be a statutory 'Times Table Check' towards the end of Year 4.
Half-termly learning log: A 'learning log' will be set each half term. This will be a project or piece of work for the children to complete at home. If you wish to help them and be involved, that's great! Alternatively, the children can complete it independently. It will be sent home in the first week or two of the half term. Children can now upload their completed learning logs onto Seesaw rather than bringing them into school.
