Homework 

 

TypeDay SetDay DueExpectations
ReadingEvery dayEvery dayEvery 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 via Class Dojo 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.

Times TablesFridayFriday

The children will each be set a times table to practise during the week, ready for a test the following Friday.  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!

SpellingsFridayFridayEach week, the children will have 10 words to learn based around a theme (e.g. homophones).  They will be tested on these 10 words.  The Kestrels have now all been given a Spelling Shed login to help them independently practise their spellings using a fun game. 
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!
