Homework Overviews

Children in all year groups are expected to read every night – this includes their book group reading book which is changed every fortnight but may also include the children’s own choice of books from the school library.

All year groups use the Twinkl spelling resources to teach, practise and set their spellings from.

 

Year 3

In Year 3, spellings are set on a weekly basis and tested the following week in school. 

The children also have specific times tables to learn which are set every two weeks.

 

Year 4

In Year 4, a list of 10 spellings are expected to be learnt every week. The children are tested the following week in school. 

The children also have specific times tables to learn which are set every two weeks. The level to which they are expected to know their tables gets progressively harder as the year goes on.

Optional homework, based on work we have been doing in class for both maths and English, is offered through SPaG.com and the IXL website.

 

Year 5

In Year 5, a set of spellings are set every Friday, due for testing in school the following week.

The children also have specific times tables to learn which are set every two weeks. 

Weekly IXL maths homework is set every Wednesday and is based on the topics the children have been learning in class. 

 

Year 6

In Year 6 the children have 10 spellings to learn every week. Each Friday, they do some learning around specific spelling patterns and then have a week to learn their words. These spelling patterns and structures have been taken from the Year 6 curriculum.

Times tables in Year 6 are tested every two weeks. The level to which they are expected to know their tables gets progressively harder as the year goes on.

From January, it is also expected that the children in Year 6 spend an hour doing online homework each fortnight (30 minutes on maths and 30 minutes on SPaG). They must also complete specific pages which are set from their CGP SATs booklets. This includes a Maths and English activity to be done from these books every week.
