Work at Home Expectations:

Please note that work at home is not compulsory and no child will be kept behind to do homework. However, parents and carers will need to inform the class teacher if they wish to opt out so that records can be amended appropriately as homework is something the school reports to parents and carers and something that Ofsted make a judgement about. The school also offers a Homework Club free of change one night a week.

 

Subject

Expectation for the work at home

Mathematics

Up to 20 minutes weekly using MyMaths set on a Thursday and completed by the following Tuesday. The work is marked online and the teacher monitors scores. Tasks are set matched to the child’s ability.

Reading

Up to 15 minutes per day. For younger children this can/should include reading to your child. Evidence shows that a male role model (father, step-father, grandfather, brother, uncle or male family friend) has a very positive influence on developing a reading habit, particularly for boys. The school will also set work using our Bug Club online resource. The Home Reading Record will be checked periodically by an adult at school.

Spelling

Spelling is taught regularly at school for at least one hour per week (three lots of 20 minutes). The school’s website has several resources that can be used to support the development of spelling including lists of words that children are expected to be able to spell. The teacher will give children spellings to learn at home if they feel it is necessary. There will be a maximum of five per week. These will be recorded in the Homework Book.  Spellings are set on a Friday and completed by the following Tuesday.

Times Tables

The Government expectation is that by the end of Yr4, all children should know their times tables to 12 x 12. Yr3 and Yr4 children will be set times table learning from MyMaths weekly until they are proficient. Older children will also be set weekly times table learning as appropriate.  Times Table learning is set on a Thursday and completed by the following Tuesday.

Preparation for the extended writing session

(Not every week)

This is preparation for the extended writing session. A maximum of 30 minutes is recommended. The themes for the extended writing sessions will be given to all children in the same class and stuck into their homework books. This is set on a Monday in preparation for the extended writing sessions that will follow on a particular day the same week. Talking / practising verbally will help your child’s writing immensely.

Project-based  Work

Each term/half term a project, based on the topic theme, will be set. These are open-ended and family members are encouraged to help with the project. Parents are usually invited in at the end of a term to view the projects.

Yr6

Children in Yr6 will have two half terms of Project-based Work before they commence the revision programme designed to prepare them for the KS2 National Tests, in May the following year. A separate homework programme will be issued nearer the time.
