Homework ~ Ongoing tasks to help your child at home

Your child will be set 1 main homework task each week in addition to reading, going through their phonics work to recap the sounds learnt. Please ensure that your child's phonics folder is in school every day.

 

Please hand in completed homework in the orange box on the trolley by the due date that has been put on the homework.

Please ensure that any previous homework is handed in in this week so your child can be give their house points. 

 

Reading

Children are able to change their school reading book each morning and do this themself within their colour band so they can pursue their own interest. They are free to take a book from the next colour band in addition to their current book if they wish.

Phonics

In class your child is tested daily on their ability to segment and blend the words in their phonics folder by an adult. They also have the opportunity to practice spellings which is followed by a short test.

 

Each day their blue phonics folder is sent home so your child can share their progress and continue securing what they have been learning about. 

 

See line 1

At school words which have been ticked in pencil are words your child has indicated they can both read and explain the meaning of. Words ticked in pen clarify that your child is able to read them.  Some word meanings will be checked but we are unable to check every word for every individual during the phonics session.

 

At home encourage your child to show off their reading ability with the harder words. 

 

To boost their spelling further, choose a couple of the words for them to spell and get them to write them on the back of the sheet. Alternatively ask your child to trace the sounds on your back for you to guess or play hangman.

​See line 3 and 5

At school, words which have been circled indicate words that your child may be able to read but which they still don't know the meaning of. These may be circled by your child or by the teacher/TA. 

 

To gain familiarity with these words it would be helpful if children could go through the meaning of these words again at home. Can they say them in a sentence to show they understand the word? 

 

See line 2

At school words with a dot/no tick next to them are words which your child has not yet secured yet during their daily phonics session. It would be beneficial for your child to practice sounding these out at home. 

Maths

 

Children are able to access both Sumdog and Abacus Activelearn to practice their maths skills using the logins that have been sent home. 

 

English

 

Children have a login to be able to access the texts (ebooks) we are reading at the moment in class.

Homework ~ Spotlight Project for the Autumn Term

 

We are starting something called Spotlight.

The children will be able to choose an activity to do that links with our topic ‘Celebrate’. 

 

A selection of ideas have been provided below although the children are free to pursue their own ideas linked to celebrations if they choose.

 

We ask that all children complete at least one challenge over the term. They can do more than one challenge if they choose.

 

These will be shared at the end of the day over the remaining weeks. Children will receive house point rewards for their efforts.

 

Please bring spotlight projects in as your child completes them so that they can be shared with the class.

 

We hope that you will find this a valuable opportunity to explore together and to share in your child’s learning.
