Homework arrangements for each class:
Reception: Information to follow
Year 1: Year one homework is the ‘Talk homework’. It goes out on a Friday to be in on a Tuesday. They also get reading books and spelling each week.
Year 2: Reading every night; Spellings; Learning challenge from the week this could be maths or English related. All homework is given out on a Friday and expected back the following Tuesday. Children are tested on their spellings every Friday.
Year 3: Homework will be set on a Friday each week and should be returned into school on a Tuesday. Homework will include a piece of ‘Talk homework’ where pupils will be given an area to discuss with their families. Pupils will also have a short piece of maths work and 10 spellings to learn. Spelling and mental maths quizzes will be held weekly to monitor children’s progress in this area. Pupils should also be reading daily to an adult at least four times a week and this should be signed in their reading records.
Year 4: This will be handed out on Fridays, and to be collected in on the following Tuesday. Reading is really important, as it will help our children to be naturally creative writers, so please encourage/listen to your child read at least 20 minutes per day. Spellings are sent home on Monday for a test on Friday.
Year 5: Children have their reading diaries checked daily and can change books as needed through the week. Homework is set on a Friday and returned on a Wednesday for marking and feedback time. We have a reading challenge in class; five stamps in your book to show you have read means a small prize at the end of the week.
Year 6: Homework is set weekly for both Maths and English, building on the skills taught that week. In Autumn term, year six use a homework folder to store each of their set tasks. At the start of Spring Term, the children then begin to complete tasks set from SATs revision workbooks – which are then marked together in class. Spelling is worked on continually – with a spelling list set at the beginning of the academic year (stored in reading records).
