Homework may vary slightly throughout the year but will generally follow a similar format.
Pupils will usually have:
- Spelling words are issued and practiced in class on Mondays. Words for the term are included at the front of homework jotters. Pupils can choose how to learn their spelling words. An ideas sheet is included at the front of their homework jotter but feel free to come up with your own ideas and record learning in jotters. Spelling words will be tested on Fridays.
- Word Aware words to help develop vocabulary. These should be discussed and used at home as often as possible.
- Reading will be heard and new pages/books issued on Tuesdays.
- 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.
- Maths ‘Learn it’s’ for the term are included at the front of homework jotters.
- 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.
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’
NO TO HOME‘WORK’ YES TO HOME LEARNING!!
Here are some examples of wee class homework
