The children will be set 6 or 10 spellings weekly (on a Monday) depending on their year group and ability which will be stuck in their planner.
Testing will happen on a Friday morning and may be single words or as part of a dictated sentence.
The terms spellings can be found on a PowerPoint document in the homework briefcase on our class website page.
Children are expected to read daily, recording what has been read in their homework diary. They may read books from the library, or home which link to their Lexile level, which will be retested during the first few weeks of term.
Before children change their books they will be expected to answer a quiz on the text, if one is available. This can be done at school or at home using the login information they have been given. If they score 7 or more out of 10 then they will be able to change their book.
Each time a book is completed your child can add a sticker to their school reading chart, which when filled will entitle them to choose a book prize as a reward.
Alongside reading and spelling homework the children will also be set additional homework which they will record in their planners on a Monday. Details of weekly homework can be found on the website homework page, in case your child is ill and misses recording this.
Maths homework will consist of a 10 minute activity set from a book, which your child will receive during the first week. If this book is lost, a new one will need to be purchased from school at a cost of £2. All homework must be completed to a high standard. Untidy or incomplete work must be redone/ completed during break time. You will receive a text if your child’s homework is not handed in on time each week.
Children will be issued with a Reading/ Homework Diary. These must be bought to school in their bags EVERY DAY. Please check and sign this weekly. The Diary will be used to record all homework set and any messages that need to be passed between home and school. Books will be checked on a Monday. Please ensure that your child knows if there is a message that needs to be read before this day.
