Homework Programme

I hope you find this homework sheet useful.

It is our intention that the children copy their weekly spelling on a Monday. The children then learn their words for Friday by the LaSaCaWaC method. All homework should be handed in on Fridays but earlier if desired.

The children should write the tasks, listed below in their homework diaries on Mondays. Initially this is difficult for children but it does get easier with practice.

The Maths Parent Prompt should be retained for constant practice.

Spelling

Group Reading and Worksheets (WS)

Times tables practice (Daily)

Maths Work (Written or Oral)

Recorder Practice (from September)

Revise Spelling for assessment

Topic if issued

As long as the homework is completed weekly, it can be done in any order. These are only guidelines.

Please practise the common words as we shall assess them throughout the session.

We shall update the homework programme on our website each term.
