|A note from the team…
A number of parents have contacted us regarding the time taken to complete recent homework. Please note that the homework that we set is designed to take one hour to complete (30 minutes per task); should your child struggle with a task, please stop them after 30 minutes and indicate that they found it difficult in their homework book.
* Please note that this one hour limit does not include spellings and reading as it is a school-wide expectation that these skills are practised multiple times each week. *
Ideally, please encourage your child to read every day for at least 20 minutes. The minimum expectation is that your child should be reading for 15 minutes five times a week. This reading should be a mixture of independent reading and reading alongside an adult.
Please take the time to sharpen your mental maths skills by playing some of the following games:
Select one of the following numbers:
32, 50, 10, 44, 98, 108, 12.5, 27.5, 210, 25, -3, 900.
Write ten facts about your chosen number. Do not write more than ten facts – focus on choosing them wisely and trying to be as creative as you can, using all of your mathematical knowledge!
There will be no spellings homework this week.
