All homework is given out on a Friday and is expected to be handed in by the following Wednesday.

Spellings & Times Tables:

Each week, the children will be tested on their spelling words (given out via Class Dojo) and times tables. The children will be expected to learn the spellings of each word and their definitions also.

The results of these tests will be given to parents every week so you are aware of the children’s scores and which words/times tables they still need further support with.

Reading Records:

All children will be given a reading record, where parents are asked to record when they listen to their children or when the child reads independently at home. The reading record will be shown to the teacher daily as evidence of reading; this will then be used daily for the child to move up the reading ladder which is displayed in the classroom. Every time the child moves up a step on the ladder they receive a reward, with the ultimate goal of getting to the top step, which results in being awarded with a sticker for their reading records. 

Reading Ladder:

  1. + 1 House Point (For reading Sunday Evening)
  2. + 1 House Point (For reading Monday Evening)
  3. + 2 House Points (For reading Tuesday Evening)
  4. + 3 House Points (For reading Wednesday Evening)
  5. + Sticker (For reading Thursday Evening)

If a child reaches ‘Stage 5’ more than 4 times in a half-term, they will receive a certificate from the Senior Leadership Team at the end of half-term.

Written Homework (English & Maths):

Every child will have a homework book for both English & Maths where they will complete the given homework tasks. All tasks will be marked either by peer assessment or teacher assessment. We encourage homework to be marked during the lesson time as this allows for the children to work collaboratively and discuss learning points with each other and their teachers.

For Maths, an online MyMaths task may be set in place of a written task sometimes but this will be indicated in the child’s homework book when this is the case.

 

Homework Club:

If a child does not complete their homework by the given deadline, they will be expected to attend a lunchtime homework club on a Thursday. They will then have time to complete any missing homework with a teacher. If there is a valid reason as to why your child has not completed their homework, please do contact your child’s teachers to inform them as soon as possible.
