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 each week to confirm that they have completed their reading.  
Maths Every day Every day The children in Kestrels have all been given a Doodle Maths login, which we encourage them to use to practise every day - they have a 'daily 5' to practise.  This will help them to earn a higher streak and in turn, collect more stars!  Additionally, each Friday we are setting homework through doodle maths based on our classwork that week to reinforce objectives and skills.  Please pop in to see us if you have any questions.
Times Tables Thursday Thursday

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 Thursday Thursday 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.
Topic/English Friday 10th January Wednesday 25th March The children are invited to bring their topic homework in to show to celebrate with the other children in class.  We can't wait to see the results of the hard work you have put in!
