Homework is set each week through the term, but will not be sent home for holidays. Please continue practising their reading or spellings at any opportunity.
In Year 1 and Year 2 we will change home reading books for all children weekly. We encourage parents to listen to their children read aloud daily wherever possible.
Reading is of course much more than the reading schemes we use in school and is a vital part of children's learning. It is important to share all sorts of books with your children; reading bedtime stories, poetry, information books and so on, allowing children to learn new language and develop a joy for reading.
Chichester Library has a wide selection of both fiction and non-fiction for children of all ages and it's free to join.
Spellings will be set by the children's teachers in their phonics groups with a spelling test on Wednesday where appropriate.
The children in Year 2 are also now expected to write sentences for their spellings, to help them practise and learn how to use the particular words.
Maths Homework will be set on Thursday to be handed in the following Wednesday. Homework may take the form of practising key skills such as number bonds or times tables and will always be linked to what the children have been learning in class. Homework will be set by the children's maths teachers.
Topic Homework: Due Friday 18th May- Below are some ideas......
