Homework

Homework will be set each Friday for completion by Friday of the following week.

Reading Homework: It is expected that children will read for pleasure on a daily basis and that parents will support their children in selecting appropriate reading material for their age and ability. Children will also be set reading comprehension tasks to complete from time to time.

Spelling, Grammar and Punctaution Homework: Each week children will be given 10 spellings to learn - these words will either follow a spelling rule or pattern or they will be common exception words. Children are encouraged to use the 'Look, Say, Cover, Say, Write and Check' method alongside other methods for learning their spellings. Spellings will be tested each week in class on Monday. Children will also have a weekly grammar and punctuation task to complete for homework.

Maths Homework: Each week children will be given a set of arithmetic questions to complete for homework. They will also be given a maths homework task that links to their learning in class that week. 

Additional Tasks: On occasion, additional homework tasks may be set to support class-based learning.

Optional Tasks: Children will also have opportunities to earn team points for their house teams by completing optional homework tasks. These tasks will again extend and develop learning beyond the classroom. 

 

 

PE Lessons

PE lessons are scheduled to take place on Thursdays and Fridays this half term. All children should have the correct PE kit in school every day to ensure that they are always ready to take part in PE lessons. To ensure safety, long hair should be tied back and earrings should be removed. During the winter months children should be prepared to participate in outdoor sessions by ensuring they have warm clothing as part of their PE kit.

This half term our Thursday PE sessions will be taught by a professional judo coach. All children will have the opportuntity to learn the basics of this martial art and will have the opportunity to gain their first judo belt.
