HOMEWORK EXPECTATIONS

Weekly Requirement:

Daily Reading

It is really helpful if you let us know how the children are getting on with their reading at home. Please try to listen to them daily and make a comment, or on busier days please sign your child’s reading record to let us know that they have read their books at home.  We will collect the children’s reading records in when they have Guided Reading each week, and award House points if they have read daily and it is written in their reading record book.

Spellings

Spelling books will be given out on a Wednesday and checked on a Tuesday.  Please help them to read the words and understand what they mean, and then practise spelling them. They could be practised by copying them out and then trying to write from memory, orally spelling them out loud or using the Look Cover Write Check method. You could stretch your child by asking them to put the words into a sentence and write it down.

Maths or English Task

Complete the weekly task of either English or Maths due in on Tuesday morning in their homework books (given out on a Thursday)

Big Talk

Your child will also have a ‘Big Talk’ homework this is to help them to prepare for a ‘Big Writing’ session on a Monday morning.  Please discuss with your child what they will be writing about.  You do not need to record anything for this homework (given out on a Thursday).

You may also wish to help your child with their 2, 5 and 10 timetables.  We will be working on these everyday in class.

Please ensure your child has their spelling book and reading book in their book bag each day as they have the chance to practise them in school.

INTERNET SAFETY (Digital Literacy).

Here are some top tips for safe Internet surfing!

  1. Always tell an adult if you are using the internet and what you are using it for.
  2. Never talk to anybody you don’t know.
  3. Don’t give out any information about you (name, age, address, school) even to people you know.
  4. If something pops up on screen, don’t close the screen and tell an adult.
  5. If you get a mean message or email, ignore it and tell an adult so they can delete it.
  6. Don’t go on to websites you are told not to.

The most important thing to remember is:

If something happens you don’t like or are not sure about, tell an adult!
