Reading starts in term 1, week 1. Other homework starts gradually but is fully in place by the end of term 1. Reading school reading book 4-7 times a week to an adult please.
Spellings to learn most weeks, tested most Fridays. The words to learn should be at the front of the book, with the tests at the back.
Number bonds or times tables to learn, tested most Fridays. The children will be tested on their most recent set of number bonds/times tables on a sticker inside mental maths book.
As well as number bonds or times tables to learn, your child will be given online homework.
We use online games linked to the teaching in school. Access can be from any computer, including public libraries, but may not be possible on all tablets. Please use Google Chrome or Firefox. Internet explorer does not support the site.
The children will play games which earn points. They can spend their points on activities within the site. Last year’s class really enjoyed it.
The homework is usually given midweek. Children can play the games as often as they want. They do not have to complete their task in a single sitting, but they can earn cubes for their table in class by keeping up with the games, so the more they complete, the better.
Your child will need to log in at:
Log in details will be given once the homework starts to be allocated.
Pick and Mix Homework
In addition to the essential homework listed above, pick and mix homework is given near the beginning of each term, with a choice of activities. Children should do at least one activity and can do as many as they like. Pick and mix homework should be brought into school on the date given on the homework sheet and parents and carers are welcome into the class room at the end of that day to see what the children have done. Pick and mix homework sheets will be sent home and also put on the class page on the website.
Children should always have a full PE kit in school every day as we sometimes take the opportunity to do PE on any day. Current regular PE days are Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Year 3s will be swimming later in the school year.
PE kit is shorts, T shirt and daps, and socks if children are wearing tights. As the weather gets colder, children may use jogging bottoms rather than shorts for outdoor PE.
Other Helpful Information
Children love to work out of the classroom, and we like to get outside as much as possible. Please can your child bring a waterproof coat or jacket to school every day except in a blazing summer heatwave!
Water and Snacks
All children should bring a water bottle to school. They should take it home each day to wash it and refill it.
At morning break Y2 children have a snack of fruit or vegetable as provided by the government.
Y3 children may bring a healthy snack to eat at break time.
