Homework

We aim to foster a positive attitude towards homework and help to set good habits for Secondary School. We send out homework that is of interest to the children and matched to their ability and the aim is that the children enjoy doing it. We ask that parents and carers support their child with any homework given and let us know if their child’s homework is causing any issues at home.

We have homework clubs after school, in which children can enrol in order to complete homework in school with adult support.

In addition to formal homework, we set Home Learning Projects for children to complete with their families at the start of a topic. These projects are designed to follow children’s interests and to use their creative skills. The children bring their projects to school at the start of each half term and they are displayed in school.

We will post weekly homework assignments per class on this page, please see below:

Home Learning Expectations

Below are the home learning expectations for Key Stage and 1 and 2 children at the academy. I hope this provides you with a clear overview. If you have any comments or suggestions, please do feed them back to us. We do listen to parents and act upon feedback.

Thank you for your support.

Mathematics and English Homework 

Children are set mathematics and English homework weekly. The work is given out on Friday and must be brought back for marking on Wednesday. This work is linked to the work that has been taught during the week.

Reading –

for children following the Read Write Inc. Programme

Each Friday your child will bring home a Read Write Inc book directly linked to the level of reading and writing your child is doing in phonics. Your child will not have read this book at school. Please make sure your child brings their book bag to school every Friday so the book can be changed.

 

Your child will also bring home a book from the library. This will be a book they have chosen out of pure interest. It may be a non-fiction or a fiction book. Please read this book together with your child. Each class is allocated a time slot to use the library every week. Ask your child’s teacher for your child’s library time so that you make sure your child has their book bag in school on this day.

 

Your child should have a purple home reading diary. Please help your child to complete a page in the diary linked to either book. The class teacher will read the completed page and sign the diary every Friday.

Reading –

Accelerated Reader

 

Children read books that are linked to their current level of reading through Accelerated Reader. All children have a lesson in school every week, where they can read their books and log onto the website to complete an online comprehension test. They can also use that session or lunchtime any day to change their reading book. At home, children should continue to read their book. They need to bring their book in to school when they do their test as they will need to refer to it when answering the questions. Children should be reading daily at home for a minimum of 20 minutes. Teachers and senior managers use the individual data from Accelerated Reader to monitor reading progress.

Spellings

The spelling list is given out each Monday. Children in KS1 have 10 words to learn each week, while children in KS2 have up to 20 words to learn. The test happens the following Monday. The marked test will be in your child’s book bag for you to review.

Handwriting

We aim to ensure the ease of joining, so that our fluency and presentation of our writing improves. Each Friday your child will bring home a handwriting task linked to what has been taught. The task will need to be returned on a Tuesday, enabling teachers to read the work and provide feedback

Home Learning Projects

 

We continue with the class home learning projects. Many children produce spectacular sculptures and informative pieces of writing linked to their topics. We thank you for your support and value your input.

Timetables

Your child needs to know all their times tables (up to the 12 times table) by the end of Year 4. In Years 5 and 6 they will be moving onto much more complicated concepts, such as multiplying and dividing using four-digit numbers, plus problem-solving involving fractions and percentages. It is therefore vital that they enter Year 5 really confident in all their times tables.

 

Below is the order we teach the times tables at the academy.

 x10  x5  x2  x4  x8  x3  x6  x9  x7

Alongside learning their times tables, it is vital that children learn the division facts for each times table (for example: division facts for the 3 x table are: 6 ÷ 3 = 2, 9 ÷ 3 = 3, 12 ÷ 4 = 3).

Additional homework

The academy provides revision guides for the children in Year 2 and Year 6 to help them prepare for their end of Key Stage statutory assessments. Each week the class teacher sets homework from this guide for your child to complete. We ask that parents monitor this homework. We need to see the revision guides each Friday in their book bags.
