Weekly homework is set on a Monday and expected to be completed by the following Monday. This will be a mixture of maths, SPaG and topic related tasks. If children are falling behind or don't have access to a computer at home, they can arrange with me to complete it during lunch times at school.
Reading: All children in the class are expected to read for 30 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.
Spellings: Spellings will be set on a Thursday with a test the following Thursday.
Times tables: Children will have a times table test on Thursdays which will identify particular table facts to learn for the following week. The class will have an opportunity to focus specifically on their tables in school each week.
