Homework is an important part of your child’s development and helps to reinforce the learning that has taken place during the school day. From Monday to Wednesday your child will receive reading, spellings and tables/mental maths. These are then revised on Thursday night in preparation for their weekly test. Along with this, your child will also receive a written homework on Monday – Thursday night. This written work will cover aspects of literacy or numeracy covered in class during the day, or revisit learning that has already taken place in the earlier part of the week. This year, all homeworks will be set on Seesaw and should be completed in books.
How can I help my child with homework?
Helping your child with their homework is a valued experience in their learning as it will help motivate and encourage them to continue to work at their best. There are a number of ways that this can be done; here are some suggestions:
- Listen to them read / ask them some questions about their reading book
- Ask them their spellings/tables/mental maths
- Check that their homework is completed and signed
The latest news is that the transfer test will still go ahead although at present we are unsure of the dates. We will keep you informed of any changes.
