Homework update

Due to several questions and a lot of information being given out at irregular intervals I have put together an overview of homework and home tasks to try and help.

Expected:

Reading weekly – recorded in reading records.
Times table practice – either in times table books or using TTRockstars (App login details in blue times table book).

Homework Menu – Children should select at least 2 pieces of this to complete before each half term holiday and put in homework books, bring in as a 3D piece or upload via purple mash (purple mash log in details in back of homework book).

Spellings – Spelling tasks will be given out each Friday and expected to be completed before the following Friday, when children will have their test. We are using an app called Spelling Shed and I will set the most up to date spelling rule using the app so children can also log in and practice at home. I will be able to see how many spellings children are getting right and be kept up to date with their progress – this does not have to be done on the app and can just be done using the paper worksheet sent home but I would recommend it where possible as I think children will find it more engaging and it is brilliant spelling practice each week (log in details in the back of homework books).

Additional/optional tasks:

Reading journal tasks – these can be completed as and when children wish and are not expected but just additional activities to go alongside their own personal reading (not school reading books).

IDL – Another online spelling programme we are using in Class to promote and extend children’s spelling knowledge, it is really good to link reading and spellings and the children enjoy using it (log in details in the back of homework books).

I hope this clarifies and clears up any confusion.
Many Thanks, Miss Clough.
