Key Stage 1 and 2 Homework 2017/18
At Montbelle Primary School homework is set as a means to enhance learning for all children in our school. Even though the homework set is not compulsory (non-statutory), we do positively encourage our pupils to complete the homework tasks for their own benefit as we believe it plays a vital role in linking learning in school with learning at home (See Appendix 1 within our Home School Agreement). Children that do not complete or are unable to complete their homework will not be penalised or chastised.
This academic year we are continuing with the termly homework grid, where we encourage your child/children to complete at least one of the set learning style activities found on the grid each week. In addition to this, each Key Stage 2 year group class will send out their weekly spelling lists to learn, an arithmetic test and the current times tables they are learning. At Montbelle we expect daily reading at home, and we kindly request that parents/carers write a comment about their child’s/children’s reading in their reading records.
In Year 1, the children will continue to receive ‘Working together ideas’ on a Friday along with their new spelling lists. The children will then have their spelling test the following Friday.
In Year 2, spelling lists are given out on a Tuesday with a test on the following Monday.
Each child in Year 1 and Year 2 has been given a book changing day to ensure that their reading books are updated on a weekly basis. Please ensure that the children are reading regularly with you at home and that their reading journal is completed.
In Years 3, 4 and 5, homework will be sent out on Thursday, with any completed homework to be handed in to their class teacher on Wednesday morning of the following week.
In Year 6, homework will be sent out on Friday, with any completed homework to be handed in to their class teacher on Wednesday morning of the following week.
