Homework is set on a Friday to be returned by the following Thursday. It normally is on a Maths theme, but sometimes will link into topic or other subjects. Each child will have a homework book for this. Please speak to me if there is anything you would like to ask about the homework.
Holiday homework. Each holiday, homework will link to what they have been learning about or to the next topic.
Spellings are set each Friday with spelling tests on the following Thursday. Spellings are normally a combination of spelling patterns and keywords. It may also be a chance to practise topic words. We encourage children to practise their spellings by look, read, cover and write. It can help to underline any spelling patterns for that word to encourage children to identify phonic patterns. Even copying words, or using different colours to write with, can help children to learn their spellings.
Please ask me if you would like any help with helping your child to learn their spellings at home.
Could children bring their homework and spelling books back by each Thursday ready for spelling tests which will be written in the back of their spelling book and the new homework to be set.
