Homework:
 
Home reading 
Pupils should be reading for 15 minutes every night with their school book.
This will either be a fiction or non-fiction book. They will keep this book for 3 days and will be expected to read it each day at home to develop their fluency. Your child will also bring home a book to share and enjoy each week.  Please note that this may well contain words that we wouldn’t expect your child to read independently and has been chosen by your child simply for pleasure. 
 
Spellings - these will be issued each Tuesday then tested on the following Tuesday. Handwriting practice sheets will contain the spelling list and are to be completed and returned for the Monday morning test.  The school uses 'Spelling Frame' which supports the children's learning and this should be completed each week.
 
Maths - this will be issued on a Tuesday. This will consist of a sheet of Maths questions to further pupils' understanding of their maths topics.
