Homework should be consolidating what we have been learning in class; hence it should not take too long to complete. If your child finds the homework difficult please do not hesitate to let me know or leave a comment in their planner so that we can focus on working on those skills some more at school.
To start the year homework will consist of 3 pieces - a maths task, a SPaG task or comprehension activity, spelling list and times table practice or application. Please find details of your child's homework on the website if you are unsure of what it is your child needs to complete.
Homework should be handed in by Wednesday. The spelling test will take place on a Wednesday and the times table test will be on a Thursday.
Please also encourage your child to read, then question them on what they are reading to ensure they have a good understanding of the text. Remember to read on a Wednesday evening and get it signed off by an adult for Thursday morning and the whole school Buster's Book Club competition! I am happy to accept a signed note, or planner so do not panic if you cannot find your bookmark.
If you are struggling with what to recommend your child reads please do not hesitate to ask me for some suggestions or pick something off of the 100 books to read during year 5 and 6 list which was given out last year - I have also attached a copy below.
There was no half term homework given this term other than the new Homework Takeaway Menu which is optional - please see the file below.
