Homework

*Please do remember that you are welcome to complete your homework during lunchtimes - I am always more than happy to help and support you with it. However, please do not leave this until the due-in day. 

 

Your homework includes: 

 

  • Daily reading to an adult, sibling or even a pet! (10 minutes minimum). Log at least four entries in your journal. 

 

Reading can include all types of books, newspapers, magazines, comics - hard copies or online!

You will have some questions to use with your reading text; please use these to discuss what you are reading with your listener.

*Listening to other people reading also helps you to develop a love of reading, and become a skilled reader, writer and communicator. You can listen to various celebrities reading a wide range of books here: https://www.storylineonline.net/

 

  • Reading task: Each week, choose and complete one activity from the bingo board in your homework book. Please ensure that the amount and content is to your best ability. 

 

 

  • Daily times table practice (5 minutes) 

 

You are expected to learn and be able to recall your times tables and division facts to 12, as this really does help you with all of the other areas of Maths. Please continue to try and beat your own and others’ scores on TTRockstars.

  • Extra tasks:

 

Each week, we will a task linked to either the topic, maths, english or reading comprehension which we are covering in class. Completing these will help to reinforce your learning, and also help you get to grips with any aspects which you might find particularly challenging.
