Homework P5-7


Big Class Homework

-Homework may vary slightly throughout the year but will generally follow a similar format.

– Pupils are responsible for filling in their own homework diary.

– Pupils can earn Dojo points for the effort they put into being responsible and organised.

– I can be contacted through Dojo from 8am to 6pm Monday to Friday. Contact can also be made by emailing helen.hamilton@south-ayrshire.gov.uk

Pupils will usually have:

Literacy:                                                                                                                                     – Spelling words.  Prim Ed workbooks have been issued to each pupil.  1 unit should be completed every 2 weeks.  Spelling test will usually happen on a Friday.

– Reading and a task to complete for Book Club each Friday. (extra job sheets can be downloaded from school website)

Maths:                                                                                                                                 – Pupils are encouraged to play a range of mental maths games at home. These games are taught and discussed in school. Purchasing a pack of cards and a couple of dice would be useful for some maths games.                                                                                                                             – Websites and game info can be found on our school website.


Pupils will have homework relating to other curricular areas from time to time; this could be research, resource gathering or a project. You will be able to see what your child has been doing in class by regularly logging onto the school website https://blogs.glowscotland.org.uk/sa/fishertonpsandeyc/

I will often advise pupils how they can extend their learning at home and give them the opportunities to value and manage their learning beyond the classroom.

The aim is to banish the dreaded homework monster  and work together to develop a lifelong love  of learning.

Homework DOESN’T need to be a worksheet! A wee reflection on something they have done, a photo, a newspaper clipping or relating class learning to experiences in their real life is ALL valuable home‘work’


I hope this section will help the pupils with homework activities.  I will add things as they become relevant.  If there is anything you would like to see in the homework section let me know. 

Here are some examples of what pupils produce for their homework tasks.  The homework issued aims to encourage pupils to take ownership of their learning and value the opportunities they are given to do so.  Spelling, reading and maths tasks are given and suggested by the teacher.  It is up to the pupils engage with the tasks and produce work that reflects elements of personalisation and choice.

Here is an example of how one pupil uses their homework diary to note important information and be organised for school.


Here are some homework resources that will help support learning and complete tasks. (Underlined words are links to resources or websites)
