Homework this year will be set to reinforce the learning that is being completed at school, and will be greatly beneficial for your child to complete at home.
Each week, children will bring home a weekly spelling list given out on Fridays, to then complete a spelling test the following Friday. Daily practice would be much appreciated if this can be completed.
A big focus this year will be on timetables practise. At school, children will be completing daily timetable tests. To help the development of their understanding at home, children should be encouraged to make use of the online programme “Times Table Rockstars”. Their passwords and usernames will be given out in due course. With this programme, children can earn coins and rewards to improve their avatar which will be displayed in the classroom. Also, children will be sent home with timetable flashcards for those at home to help with daily practise.
Finally, children will be sent home with a piece of Maths and English homework relating to the topic taught in the week which be given out on Fridays to complete over the weekend, which will need to be handed in on Tuesdays.
Many thanks for your cooperation, if you have any queries about the above please get in touch via the class dojo app.
