Homework

Infant School Home Learning

Homework should be enjoyable, build on children’s learning and also be something that enables a parent to share in their child’s learning.

At the Infant School we give the children from Reception to Year 2 homework activities as home learning and each child has a home learning log/book. Every week they are given an activity that is an ‘I can’ statement, and they can then decide how they complete the task, and how they present it.

Reading

To support your child with becoming a confident reader we would like each child to read to or with an adult at least three times every week. If you read a story to your child and discuss it, add this in too. Please also ensure you are asking those questions to develop your child’s skills and abilities as a reader. Please write a note in your child’s reading record, which will be checked by their teacher every week. Please ensure reading records are in school every day.

Children who have read at home will be awarded dojo points: one point for reading three times, two points for reading five times and three points for reading seven times.

MyMaths

Each child in year one and two has access to MyMaths. It would be beneficial if your child could do 20-30 minutes of independent work on this each week.

 

Junior School Home Learning

Homework should still be enjoyable, build on children’s learning and also be something that enables a parent to share in their child’s learning.

To support your child we will have our core set of homework for all children on MyMaths, spellings and reading, and there will be optional creative home learning for those children that wish to complete it.

MyMaths

There is an expectation that children will complete 30 minutes of independent MyMaths at home each week. This does not need to be done at once, for example it can be broken into three, 10 minute slots.

Times tables

Children will have access to Timestable Rockstars, an online platform to practise their tables. In Key Stage 2, children are expected to become confident in knowing their times tables in a random order. Practice and repetition are the main ways to learn, and Timestable Rockstars makes this enjoyable and adds an element of competition.

Reading

To support your child with becoming a confident reader we would like each child to read to an adult at least three times every week. Please also ensure you are asking those questions to develop your child’s skills and abilities as a reader. Please write a note in your child’s reading record, which will be checked by their teacher every week. Please ensure reading records are in school everyday.

Children who have read at home will be awarded dojo points: one point for reading three times, two points for reading five times and three points for reading seven times.

Spellings

Please look at the list of spellings inside your child’s home learning book and practise them regularly.

 

We have created some Summer Holiday Challenge sheets for each year group to try at home!
