Weekly homework tasks:
- Daily reading at home (home reading book) to an adult
- Spellings (tested weekly)
- TT Rockstars / practising times tables
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) and sign their reading record. When your child has finished their book, they need to hand it in to Mrs Ashworth or Mrs Layfield who will change it.
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 5 and 6 statutory words 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. (Please note - your child may receive different words to learn that are tailored to their needs).
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.
