Your child will bring home a home-school reading book. It is absolutely vital that someone at home hears children read daily. Research has shown that the biggest influence on a child’s success at school is reading at home!
Children will sometimes also bring home a short piece of text to read aloud with expression – to their chosen ‘Lucky Listener’. You don’t even have to stop what you’re doing or be a good reader yourself to be a Lucky Listener – just listen to your child read, and sign the back of the slip as many times as someone listens!
We have set a series of different activities for child to carry out over the course of the term. The activities vary in subject and level of challenge. Homework is an extension of what pupils have learnt in school and also an opportunity to gain new understanding as they develop their researching skills to acquire new information.
Homework is set on a Friday and due in on a Wednesday, wherever possible we ask that you child completes their homework independently.
