Our homework expectations this year are:
- That every child reads for a minimum of 20 minutes each day and that their reading record is signed by an adult at home
- That every child practises their times tables for a minimum of 10 minutes each day, using their times tables cards, Times Tables Rockstars, or timestables.co.uk to help.
Exposure to reading and times tables on a daily basis will ensure that your child develops into a confident and proficient learner. From time to time, your child may be given a worksheet or activity to complete that relates to the wider curriculum. These will be handed out on a Tuesday and are expected to be handed back in on Friday (unless otherwise stated).
Please use the following website to practise your times tables in a timed situation. Timestables.co.uk has several games and tasks that can be done in order to help you improve your recall of the times tables (https://www.timestables.co.uk/multiplication-tables-check/).
All children are expected to read regularly at home, and record this in their reading records. Reading records are collected daily and those children that have not read at home will be asked to read at lunchtime to a ‘reading buddy’. We are incredibly lucky to have access to such rich and varied literature for children so please take the time to look at the following recommended reading lists, pick a book and let your imagination soar!
