Homework

Dear Parents/ Carers

As well as weekly Homework, please also look at the half termly Curriculum Letter to Parents ‘How to help your child at home’ section for further ideas of how to help your child in Maths and Literacy at home.

Setting a homework timetable for your child:

It is up to parents and carers to decide how to organise children’s homework routines at home but children should be doing their homework on most days eg Monday: Reading / Times tables   Tuesday: Reading/Spelling   Wednesday: Reading / Times tables etc 

 

Y3 Y4  Y5  Y6  Homework

Each week your child will get the following homework:

  • Spellings to learn
  • Times Tables Homework
  • Reading (daily) Children should work on learning their spellings throughout the week. Weekly spellings will be listed in planners or given out on a sheet.Times tables knowledge is crucial for most Maths concepts and children who don’t know their times tables fall behind in Maths. The times table that your child needs to learn is written each week in their planner or on paper. Children should learn the given times table in order, out of order and learn the division facts for that times table. *Some children in Key Stage 2 know all their times tables and they will not be given a specific times tables but asked instead to work on speed/fluency and division facts revision of all times tables choosing a few times tables at a time. The government recommendation for primary school children is that children should read at home for 20-30 mins per day. Please sign your child’s planner to show that they have been reading. Year 2 HomeworkSpellings are written in the children’s Spelling Books. Spelling homework is sent home in Planners.In Spring and Summer Terms, Maths homework is given out weekly (on paper).Nursery and Reception-
