Spellings & Homework
Home learning will be set consistently by the class teacher in order to consolidate and extend the learning of that particular week. Each week, one piece of either written or creative work will be set, alternating between Maths, English and Big Question learning.
Home learning will be set on a Thursday afternoon and discussed with the class. This will be set on Seesaw or MyMaths - a letter will be sent home each week to direct children on how to access their work for that week.
Home learning is due to be completed by the following Tuesday.
Additionally to this, pupils will be given a list of spellings to practice that will be tested the following Thursday. These spellings are informed by the statutory spellings list for this age range.
Pupils are also expected to read every night, this can be independently done but pupils should be encouraged to read texts that they enjoy whilst also challenging their ability.
Pupils should practice their times tables at home, developing their fluency and understanding of tables 1-12. We will also do this at school, consolidating our learning with mental arithmetic activities and tests.
Home learning will be differentiated where appropriate and additional support / resources will be made available to those who require this.
If you have any problems or concerns regarding home learning, please don't hesitate to contact me.
