Reading - All children have a reading book and a reading record, children are expected to read at least three times a week outside of school time, this may include their school book or additional literature that they may chose which appropriate to their level. Please note this in your child's reading record. Once children have finished their school reading book they are to write a book review, a short summary about the book, was it enjoyed and who would it be suitable to recommend to.
Reading records may also be used to converse between parent/guradian and class teacher, please check your child's reading record regularly as their class teacher may have written something in it.
All children have age appropriate spellings in the front of their reading record, these are new curriculum spellings that children are expected to know by the end of the academic year.
Children receive Maths homework on a Friday, this is expected in the following Tuesday, therefore if children need to see the teacher/support staff they have time to do so.
Additional English/topic homework may be given where needed, this will be to support and extend learning taking place in the classroom. Children will have at least a week to hand this in. If homework is not handed in on the approved day, children have an additional day to bring it in. If children fail to do this they will then stay in at break time to complete it. However all scenarios are viewed on an individual basis.
