Homework and Spellings - Whole School Policy

 

Reading

Your child should always have a reading book in their book bag. Please listen to your child read at home as much as possible. This doesn't always have to be their school reading book. Reading any type of texts such as magazines, comics, menus, etc. is just as valuable.

If you listen to your child read their school reading book, please make a comment (positive if possible) in their reading diary so that we know that the book has been read.

The children will be listened to read at school regularly and this will be logged in the reading diary too. 

 

Sound & Word Cards

Some children also have a selection of sound and word cards to work on. Please work with your child to learn these sounds as this will aid their progress with spelling and reading. Ideally we like children to know these words off by heart and out of order before we can move onto the next card.

 

Maths

Maths homework will be given out every Monday and should be returned the following week. The work will be linked to something the children have been learning in class and may also be differentiated to suit each child's ability. If you need any resources like paper, please see a member of staff in class.

 

Spellings

Each week your child will have spellings to learn. Please help your child to learn their weekly spellings, these will be tested each Monday. Spelling results are sent home the same day. Spelling is a key priority in the new curriculum and is something that the children need to be able to do in order to meet the Year 1 expected standard set by the government. Spellings are given out at the beginning of every term. We suggest Look, Cover, Write, Check when learning new spellings.

Thank you for all your support. Learning at home is vital to helping your child in school! We appreciate all the hard work parents put in at home and it shows in the children's progress.
