Children will bring their homework book home each Monday and it should be returned on Fridays. • Each week will consist of three activities.
1. Big Write • On Fridays we will do a Big write in school. • We will tell the children what the topic is on Mondays to give them all week to think about what to write. • Please could you talk about the subject at home during the week. • Children may make notes in their homework books if they wish but they DO NOT need to write down the whole story.
2. Tables and Spelling • Our weekly tables and spelling tests will also take place on Fridays. • They will also be given out on Mondays to learn through the week. • Please could you practice these at home for a little bit each night.
3. Research Question • There will be one question a week for children to research. • They may find this out by; asking an adult, from a book or a supervised internet search. • They can just write this down in a simple sentence in their books.
