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.
Phonics: Instead of spelling tests, this year children will be given phonics homework to be completed each week. This will consist of a list of words that link to a sound that they have learnt that week. We expect that the children will practice reading the words at least three times to an adult, by saying each sound in the word and then blending the sounds together to read the whole word. The children can draw the sound buttons underneath the word to help them. There will be a mix of real and alien (nonsense) words for the children to read and the children can identify the alien words by either colouring them in or drawing a small alien beside them. As an extension the children could write any other words that contain the same sound that they find in their reading books into their phonics books.
Please could children bring all phonics books and homework back by each Thursday.
