Homework

Children are given a reading book appropriate to their level, which they are expected to read daily. Please write in your child’s contact book when they have finished reading it so the teacher knows when to change it. Your child will receive weekly English and Maths homework which is based around their learning in class. They will be given this on Thursday and expected to return it by Tuesday of the following week. There will also be spelling lists given each week from the Year 5/6 spelling list.

As well as the academic homework, including daily reading that the children complete, we want to encourage and celebrate the children’s creative side. The children are encouraged to use their thinking hats to create a piece of homework that we can share with the whole school community, including parents, at parent’s evening.  They can pick from one of the suggested ideas or create an idea of their own. The children will vote for the most create homework (green hat thinking) from each class. Good luck!

Below is the link for the Cornerstones homework. This should be returned to school by 8th February.
