Maths – ‘My Maths’ challenges will be set for children weekly for them to practice their knowledge at home this will be partnered with individual times tables booklets to complete at home.
Daily reading - Each week the children get the opportunity to choose a book to take home. They are expected to read at home at least three times a week and we ask you to record this in their reading record children who reach this target will be rewarded. Even if your child is a confident reader you can help them by asking questions about the book to check their understanding. Check that they understand the meaning of words and ask them why certain punctuation is being used. Children can be asked to summarise the story or to discuss the characters in the book and why they like them or dislike them. It is useful for children to be able to talk about the types of books they like: science fiction historical, adventure, etc.
Any inquiries about your child's homework please do not hesitate to ask.
