|Type||Day Set||Day Due||Expectations|
|Reading||Every day||Every day||Every child should spend an average of 15 minutes reading daily. We ask that that the book title, page numbers and a small comment are recorded in their home-contact book each day. They can complete this themselves, we just ask that you check to ensure they are reading each day and sign their book.|
The children will each be set a times table to practise during the week, ready for a test the following Thursday. It is very important that they continue to practise the quick recall of their tables even after they have completed their 12 times table. Times Tables Rockstars is the recommended way to practise!
|Spellings||Friday||Friday||Each week, the children will have 10 words to learn based around a theme (e.g. homophones). They will be tested on these 10 words and will have a 'pot luck' sentence test. One of the words they have learnt will be worth a bonus point when put into a sentence underneath their test.|
|Topic/English||Friday 11th January||Thursday 7th February||The children are invited to bring their topic homework in to show at school during an 'Open Afternoon', which will take place at 2.30pm on Friday 8th February this term. We can't wait to see the results of all the hard work you have put in (Miss Smith is particularly excited (or nervous) about the overflowing potions task!).|
