Homework/Useful Revision Resources
Homework is handed out on a Tuesday via Seesaw and due in the following Monday (also submitted via Seesaw). If children would prefer a paper copy of the homework to complete, this is also absolutely fine. Handing in homework early or on time can earn the children house and dojo points!
Children will nearly always receive one piece of English and one piece of Maths homework each week, although occasionally this may be altered depending on what the children are finding more challenging. There is also the potential that in some terms children will be given a project to complete as opposed to the weekly maths and English homework.
Often children will be completing homework which is related to what we have covered that particular week. However, sometimes I might give children homework which I have not taught them yet. This is just as useful, as it allows me to see which gaps they have in their learning and informs my planning for the upcoming weeks. So please don't panic if the children are finding certain parts challenging!
If children do really struggle with a particular part of their homework, they are more than welcome to bring it in before the deadline and I will go through and help them with the part they're stuck on.
Other Useful Resources
It is always fantastic to see children completing work outside of the classroom which they want to bring in and share in school. This could be anything from a short story written up at home, to answering mathematical calculations.
There are many valuable activities children can complete at home which will aid them with their learning. A few examples can be seen below:
- Reading on a regular basis. It is recommended that children read daily if possible, and this can be recorded in their reading passport (they can get house points for this).
- If the children are stuck finding a book to get into, some good examples can be found on the web-links below.
- Another great resource to help with children's writing is Pobble 365. This website displays a range of interesting images which the children can use as a stimulus to write a short story. The link is presented below.
- Children can regularly practice areas of maths on various online sites. This could be a unit we are learning in class or a particular area that the children find challenging (such as fractions). Links to useful websites can be seen below.

- It is also very useful that children revise and keep practising their times tables. Children complete a times tables challenge each week and can earn house points if they improve on their score! Some good links for practising your times tables can be seen below.
