Homework

 

On Mondays we have a weekly spelling test. Each pupil has a spelling pack to take home at the start of the year, which sets out which spellings they need to practise each week. Spelling tests are marked and scores are returned after the test, so the children can see which spellings they need to work on.

 

In the first half term, pupils are asked to do just one maths homework per week. From November onwards, this increases to two maths homework pages per week, due on Tuesdays and Thursdays. These homework pages are from their 'Schofield and Simms' maths test booklets.

 

Pupils also have weekly grammar and punctuation homework, which is due in and marked in class on Fridays. This gives each pupil the opportunity to see where they need further support, and gives them immediate feedback.

 

Some topics will also come with an additional (optional) 'topic project' homework, where the children can bring in a project of their choice, to showcase some home learning they have done for our half termly topic.

 

Pupils are also expected the read every night, changing their reading books every day/couple of days.
