Homework will be set on Google Classroom each week and will focus on maths and spelling. The children each have a Doodle Maths account and a Spell Zone account which are personalised to their learning needs and responsive to their progression to ensure continued challenge and learning.
- can be completed on the free App or via the Doodle Maths website. The children should do 15 minutes a day 4x per week. To make this simple, we suggest they aim to achieve 21 stars a day or around 80 stars a week.
- has two learning pathways (available via the Internet). The first builds on the child's specific needs following a spelling assessment and the second is based on consolidating classroom learning. Children should do one pathway and one teacher set activity a week.
- Please also remember that children in Years 4 and 5 should be reading on a daily basis for a minimum of 20 minutes a day from a wide range of texts to ensure they are developing a wide range of vocabulary and reading skills. Please listen to your child read at least once a week. A comment in the reading journal will help us to monitor home reading.
Home learning activities (based on that week's classroom learning) will be available to all children on Google Classroom. Please look for the weekly topic in the Classroom (not the stream) where assignments for maths, English, science, humanities and other subjects will be set. Children only need to complete this learning if they are at home due to needing to quarantine or because of a bubble lockdown. Obviously, if children are unwell, they are not expected to complete the work.
If children or parents need support with any learning at home, please let us know.
