Tuesday PM


We are continuing our weekly brass lessons on a Friday afternoon with Mr Birch. It is essential that the children bring in their instruments every week on a Friday and practise their brass instruments at home every week ready for the next session.

Homework Explained!

Creative Mission Tasks:

These will be ‘creative missions’ based on topic work taking place in the classroom and will be handed out every two – three weeks to give children enough time to do a good job! These missions are aimed to give children more time and more say in how they present their homework. Each child will be given a personalised Learning log that will include their mission brief, options on how they can present their homework and the date it is due in. We will not be writing corrections or comments over their homework in order not to ruin their beautifully presented work, however, will write comments and award merits on a ‘mission de-brief sheet’ in the back of their learning log.

In my experience, children seem to prefer these types of homework and henceforth produce some high quality work.

Literacy Homework:

SPAG based for revision towards SATs, handed out on a Monday and due back in on Friday. 

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 Friday for Year 5/6 children who need extra time and/or support in completing their homework. This will run from 12.30 - 1pm.
