Homework Information for Parents
Homework this half term will be given on a Friday to be returned on a Thursday. It will be marked in class together on Thursdays. If children are struggling to complete any tasks at home, there is a homework club available after school on Mondays. The homework tasks are as follows:
The Fantastic Four Readers
The children are required to read at least four times a week in their own time for at least 10 minutes per time. Each time, an adult needs to write in their reading records. These will then be checked in class and a reward will be given to those children who read four times a week all of the time. If the children are struggling to complete this at home, Mrs Pace is based in the library at lunch time. The children can read with her during their lunch times and Mrs Pace will sign in the reading records.
Times Tables Rockstars
The children will also need to play on Times Tables Rockstars for 20 minutes, 3 times per week. This will be monitored by teachers.
I have attached our topic menu below. The children will need to complete some or all of the activities that are all related to our topic: 'Is plastic fantastic?' At the end of the half term, the children will be given up to 10 dojos depending on how much effort has been applied.
The children will be given English work booklets. Every week, the children will be told which pages will need to complete for their homework. This will be given on a Friday and then will be looked at in class on the Thursday.
