In Lower Key Stage 2 homework is set every Friday and collected the following Friday. Homework alternates each week between ‘learning logs’ and Maths homework.
Spellings, Reading and Times Tables
In addition to homework, spellings are set weekly. Spellings are given out on a Friday.
Children are expected to read at least five times a week and some of these reading sessions should take place with an adult; engaging in discussion about texts is important. We ask parents to record how often their child is reading by writing a comment about our reading and by signing our Reading Records. Each book read earns a Reading Challenge point which should be recorded at the back of our Reading Records.
Children are also expected to learn their times tables. By the end of year Three, the children should know their 2, 5, 10, 3, 4 and 8 times tables and related division facts.
By the end of year Four, all children should have quick recall of all times tables and the related division facts in a random order.
