Learning at Home
Home learning is key to extending our pupils' education. In Class 4 this also serves to prepare our pupils for the demands and challenges of secondary school.
This learning is expected to be completed at the same high standard of school work, in handwriting pen or pencil (to match the writing tool used in school). It is designed to not take a large amount of free time but enough time to ensure pupils are exercising discipline, maturity and time management in order to complete the tasks they are set.
Pupils in Class 4 receive:
- Homework (set on Friday, due in the following Wednesday). Typically one piece of maths and one grammar task in the pupils' CGP Grammar Books.
- Spellings (set on Friday, practised throughout the week and tested the following Friday.
- Times table grids (set every 2-3 weeks alongside homework).
- Reading (to be ongoing, with 4-5 entries per week expected in pupils' Reading Record books). Records are regularly checked at school and pupils who are reading at home regularly are given a raffle ticket to be entered into our class Prize Draw! Please Note: Pupils in Class four are permitted to write in their own reading records- adults can simply sign to verify their entries!
Please ensure that your child is completing this work as independently as possible, but of course help is encouraged where required. A quick note in their book will notify me of the help they have received.
If you need extra copies of our school spelling list, they are attached below for your convenience.
In addition, by the end of Year 6 pupils are expected to know the Year 5-6 Statutory Spellings included in the document at the bottom of this page.
