Homework this half term is READING, SPELLINGS, and TIMES TABLES.
Children are to read at least three times a week. They will be regularly heard reading in school and feedback from this will be found in their communication books.
Spellings will be given out to pupils on Friday afternoons. If a pupil does not receive their spellings list on Friday, they must speak to Mr Kay to request a copy. Spellings will be tested every Friday afternoon.
There are three spellings groups, Orange group, Red group, and Rainbow group.
Orange group's spellings will be sourced from the first 100 high frequency words.
Red group's spellings will be sourced from the year 1&2 spellings.
Rainbow group's spellings will be sourced from the year 3&4 spellings.
Pupils are expected to practice their times tables at homes frequently, to build their confidence. They will be tested once a week, to see how well they are doing and whether they are ready to move onto the next times tables. Feedback for these tests will be found in either the red communication books, or in the times tables practice books.
