Children are provided with a home reading book at their level. They are expected to read this daily. Please write in your child’s contact book when they have finished reading their book so that the teacher knows to change it. Your child will receive weekly English and Maths homework. This could be based on the learning that they have completed that week in class, but could also be spelling, times tables and number bonds. It is sent home on a Thursday and needs to be returned the following Tuesday.
As well as the academic homework, including daily reading that the children complete, we want to encourage and celebrate the children’s creative side. The children are encouraged to use their thinking hats to create a piece of homework that we can share with the whole school community, including parents, at parent’s evening. They can pick from one of the suggested ideas included in the curriculum information sway above or create an idea of their own. The children will vote for the most creative homework (green hat thinking) from each class. Good luck!
