Homework is used to enhance and support the learning which takes place in school; it should not be a chore or battle. Little and often is the best way.

Weekly Homework

  • Reading daily - please record this in the reading diaries.
  • Learning weekly spellings and practising the Year 5 and 6 words
  • Learning multiplication tables

 

There may be additional homework which may take the form of research or investigation, or if a child needs more practice in maths and English. However, this will be on a needs basis.

Pupils should use Spelling Shed to practise their weekly spellings in a fun, interactive way. However, it is still important to practise writing them down and putting them in sentences as this helps with vocabulary and muscle memory.

Multiplication tables are the key for all areas of maths. As a school, we use the  Times Tables Rock Stars programme. All the pupils have a login and can access this at any time. The children have completed a baseline test which has assigned them to the appropriate table to practise. This automatically moves with them as they improve or need support.
