We are continuing our weekly brass lessons on a Friday afternoon with Mr Birch. 

Homework Explained!

Weekly Spellings:

10 spellings will be given out on a Monday from their spelling teacher, these will be due in on Friday ready for a spelling test in their group. 

Maths Homework:

This will also be handed out on a Monday and expected in on Friday. This might be a worksheet type activity or problem-solving question related to maths work they have been undertaking in class.  In addition, the children in Y5/6 class are expected to be regularly logging onto Mathletics and ideally achieving 10 gold bars (new activities) and / or 1,000 points per week – this equates to roughly 30 minutes work.

Homework Club:

We know how busy home life can often be and how hard it is to squeeze time into complete homework each week. We will run a weekly lunchtime homework club on a Thursday for Year 5/6 children who need extra time and/or support in completing their homework. This will run from 12.45 - 1.15pm.
