Homework will be handed out on a Thursday and due in on a Tuesday. It will comprise of an English (spelling-related) or a Maths task (set alternately each week). A homework overview is inside both front covers so that you can see which pages need to be completed.
Maths - one arithmetic test consisting of around 30 questions centred on the four operations. It may take your child longer than the recommended 30 minutes to complete - if this is the case, please do not worry! Your child can stop after 30 minutes or carry on and complete the test if you so wish. The homework will be marked in class together with the teacher. We are aware that some questions may not have been taught thoroghly in class yet. This is because the content of these tests are the expected standard by the end of Year 3.
English - consists of spelling-related and vocabulary-building tasks. We will let you know the pages which can be completed for homework but, as with the Maths, please spend 30 minutes and stop when the time is up (unless you wish to continue). As much as possible, the spelling tasks will link with the weekly class spelling lists. Please do not complete any additional pages other than the ones set.
Home Reads/Spellings/Times Tables - Please listen to your child read at least 3 times a week (and sign their homework diary) - 'little and often' has a huge impact on your child's reading. Furthermore, please help them to learn their weekly spellings and times tables for their Times Table Rockstars (current Maths target).
Again, if you have any questions, please pop in and see us.
Many thanks for your continued support,
