Please note that children will have weekly spellings to learn, which can be practised in their homework book. They will be tested on these in class every Friday.
I try not to set too much extra homework as I know how hard the children work in school, and that they do need time to play and learn in different ways at home! However I must express how important it is for children to be reading to an adult at home, as often as possible! Just 10 minutes of reading aloud will enable them to practise and embed the reading skills they learn within school, and can have such a huge impact on their progress! They have reading records which will need to be signed each time they have read to an adult or an older sibling. If the children read three times a week at home, they will receive reward points in school.
I occasionally may set 'topic' based homework, where children can choose to do/make something based on our topic.
Thank you for your support!
