Every Friday, children will receive a piece of homework, along with their spellings.
Homework will usually be Maths, English or Topic based, which will link in with the work that we have been learning in lessons. We are hoping that this will help to consolidate children's learning.
It is really important that homework is completed by the following Wednesday to allow all children's performance to be analysed.
In keeping with the fast and growing development of technology, all homework set will be available for children to access via their personal iPad (on Showbie). Each child will already be familiar with their passwords, to enable them to access each of the learning platforms we use: Century Tech, Bug Club, Class Dojo, Purple Mash, Timestable Rockstars and Ed Shed. This year they have also been given BoomReader passwords, which can be found at all times on Showbie.
Whilst we greatly appreciate any support from parents, we strongly advise that parents allow and encourage their children to continue to work completely independently when carrying out any tasks on Century Tech - The reason being that, this software will respond automatically to the needs of each individual. Century Tech has the facility to adjust children's flight paths brilliantly; to address any areas of development, in addition to providing suitable challenge.
Spelling tests, 40 Club, SPaG Checks and Times Tables tests will take place, every Friday.
Homework is important!
Why not give this web-link a whirl, to help you with all your topic needs? It covers our complete Primary Curriculum:
As a school, we expect all children to make a conscious effort to read regularly at home.
In Year 5, the children will be responsible for updating their reading book themselves, ensuring they bring it home and return to school each day. We encourage you to read with your child as frequently as possible, aiming for at least three times each week.
Please log any reading on Boom Reader, login details can be found on Showbie.
This is so very important.
This is not your adult's responsibility, this is YOUR responsibility!
