Home Learning

Recent and extensive educational research has found that homework for primary aged children has minimal impact unless it reinforces learning and regularly allows children to rehearse and practise skills and facts e.g. times tables and spellings.

 

Reading

Children are expected to read at home regularly (at least 20 minutes daily) and to discuss their reading with an adult at home to develop language and comprehension.  Reading Record books must be brought into school every Monday to be checked.  Children are able to change their reading book whenever they need to.  Also children may borrow books from the Junior Library. We encourage the children to share their library book with an adult at home as well.

Key words/ Spelling

Please practise reading and writing your spellings. Make sure that you know the meaning of each word. There is a Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check sheet below that you can use to help you. Spellings will be tested through a dictation each week.

 

This week’s spellings:

Spelling words ending in ‘ant’, ‘ent’, ‘ance’ and ‘ence’ 

 

Spelling words assessed each Tuesday.

Learners choose which list to practice spellings from.  This is to encourage the learners to take ownership of their learning and make good learning choices. When practicing at home, ensure you understand the meaning of the word and can use it within a sentence. How many spelling words can you put into one sentence?
