Autumn 2017: New homework system

 

After lots of discussion with parents over the last academic year, a new homework system comes in to place with effect from Autumn 2017. 

 

Please find below all the documents relating to the new homework system. 

Blank Assessment sheet - you will receive one of these (completed) each term. This helps you to know what to focus on.

This is a blank version of a document which is sent home to parents. The document sent to parents is highlighted to clearly show which elements of the homework their child should focus on.

Multiplication Tables

 

By the end of Year 4, pupils should know their multiplication and division facts up to 12 x 12.

By the end of Year 3, pupils should know their multiplication and division facts for the 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 8x and 10x tables.

 

There are many different ways to learn multiplication tables - games and activities that are fun are often the most effective.

 

The Kids' Zone section of our school website (under the Children tab) has several links to online resources that can be used to practise times tables (and other core skills).

 

Here you can find the termly spellings that your child will be taught in class.  Teachers follow planning, which matches the National Curriculum, over the course of each term and teach a wide range of spelling patterns and sounds.

These spelling lists are for Years 3 and 4, and Years 5 and 6 and are derived from the National Curriculum. We have regular spelling lessons in school and children are tested weekly on the spellings that are send home. We will also be checking that they spell the words correctly in their own writing.

Maths: Core Skills

These are the core skills for each year group that pupils need to master by the end of each year. There are videos on the school website to support children and parents with these core skills. We prefer children to be taught the skills in school first and for the videos to be used as a

revision/consolidation tool, rather than to enable new learning.
