Homework Policy 2016

 

Pupils can hand in homework once it is complete with a minimum of three activities over the course of the theme.

The deadline for homework is usually the end of the half term or the term (this is when the theme will end and a new theme will start).

We also ask that an adult listens to pupils read at least twice and preferably three times each week.

Spellings and times tables practice are also valuable homework activities. 

 

​For further information on homework, see our homework policy.

 

 

Below you will find word lists for Years 3 and 4, and Years 5 and 6. 

 

These lists are derived from the National Curriculum. It would be useful for your child to be able to spell all of the words on the list. We have regular spelling lessons in school and we will test the children now and again to find out how many of the words they are able to spell. We will also be checking that they spell the words correctly in their own writing.

Spelling Years 3 and 4

Spelling Years 5 and 6

Here you can also 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.

 

Multiplication Tables

 

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

 

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).
