Reading: All children in the class are encouraged to read for 20 minutes 5 times a week - this should be a mixture of independent and alongside an adult who can help ask questions and deepen their understanding. My High Five bookmarks to be brought into school on Wednesdays.
On Mondays, between five and ten spelling words will be sent home to practise each week. Children will have a week to practise the spellings they are given. Re-visiting words regularly throughout the week will assist pupils in remembering the words. I would encourage children to spend around 20 minutes a week on this homework.
Reading Comprehension – Every other Thursday, the children will be set a reading comprehension task. They will be required to read an extract of a text and answer related questions. These questions will help the children to develop their skills of inference, prediction, explanation, recall and summarisation as well as widening their vocabulary. These are expected to be brought into school on Thursdays so that we can go through them together. Pupils will have a week to complete this task.
Grammar - children will have their own CGP grammar book, which will live in their folder. Every other Thursday, I will ask pupils to complete activities on certain pages in this book. As well as using this book for homework, we will also use it at school. Therefore, I ask that it is kept in pupils folders and brought into school each day. Pupils will have a week to complete this task.
Mangahigh – Mangahigh is used for assigning Maths homework. Tasks are set on Fridays and they are expected to be completed by the following Friday. I encourage the children to have a go at each task a minimum of three times to try and achieve/ improve on the medals they are awarded.
