HOMEWORK
English and Maths homework will be sent home on a Friday, and should be handed in on Wednesday. The focus for the weekly English homework varies between reading/ writing /spelling/grammar. Homework should take approximately 30 minutes maths homework, 30 minutes English, and 10 minutes mental maths. If it is taking too long it can be left incomplete. Some homework will be quick to test speed or build confidence other homework might involve research or revision.
Spellings are given to pupils each Tuesday, and will be tested the following Monday.  It is anticipated this will take 20 minutes.
 
READING
Reading continues to be vitally important this year, so your support with listening to your child read at home as regularly as possible, ideally on a daily basis, is very much appreciated. Discussing and asking questions about the books you share will enhance their comprehension and inference skills and we will also be focussing on these during our individual and guided reading sessions in school. Please use the Reading Prompts sent home each term to develop your child’s analytical skills. Please remember children should record any reading they do at home in their Reading Record books.
 
 
PE
The main PE lesson is held with Mr Morris on Tuesdays, however please ensure your child has their full PE kit in school every day.
 
 
KEY STAGE 2 SATs 
Following the introduction of the new National Curriculum in 2014, we now follow new assessments for KS1 and KS2. A document explaining about the assessment, and the literacy and numeracy support for parent leaflets, will guide you as to the expected learning for this age group. These can be downloaded below or under the Curriculum section of the website.
 
Y6 RESIDENTIAL TRIP
