|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 reading record each day. They can complete this themselves, we just ask that you check to ensure they are reading each day and try to ask them questions about their book to help them retain key details. Please do upload a photo to Class Dojo of the reading completed each day by your child.|
The children will each be set a times table to practise during the week, ready for a test the following Wednesday. 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 and is lots of fun!
|Spellings||Every day||Every day||Children will be taught spellings using the Read, Write, Inc spelling scheme. This focuses on explicit teaching in class. Children will have words to log and learn (Practice at home) each week in their reading records.|
|Topic/English||The children are invited to share their topic homework via Class Dojo to celebrate with the other children in class. We can't wait to see the results of the hard work you have put in!|
