Homework will be set on Monday and it is due to be completed and handed in by the following Monday:
In order to develop the pupils understanding and also give them the opportunity to revise skills that they have learnt in their maths lessons, the pupils will be set homework online. The children will be given the details of how to login in due course. The children will be set online activities to support the learning that they have covered during the week’s maths lessons.
Times Table Rockstars will be set in order to help with x-tables practise each week, pupil results in moving up their personal league table will be celebrated each week.
In order to further develop reading comprehension across the school we will be setting an online reading activity on Read Theory each week. Pupils will be completing the preliminary quiz in class to ensure the homework is accurately set to their level. Read Theory works on the basis of increasing the challenge of questions when appropriate and supporting, scaffolding or simplifying questions as needed. Each week the pupils will be able to track their progress as they see their points increase on the site.
As before, we continue to ask pupils to read for 20 minutes at home each night and record this in their home diary. This can be in the form of recording the pages or time spent reading or as a parent/carer comment.
Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling
Pupils will shortly be coming home with a login for SPAG.com. This is a website on which we will set weekly activities for the pupils to complete at home related to their learning.
As a school, we have invested in The Spelling Shed; we will set spelling lists appropriate to individual pupils related to their own targets, topic word lists or Key Stage spelling lists. The site offers a variety of fun games and activities to practise these words. In class they will then be given the opportunity to use these within their work to test their recall.
