Daily Homework Tasks
Children benefit from daily reading. It not only develops their fluency and understanding, but also enables their imagination to grow which then feeds into their writing. We ask for children to read at least a few pages each night and to log this on the Boom reading application. In addition, regular practice of times tables is essential for Mathematics and so we ask our students to also practice on Times Table Rockstars every day/.
Weekly Homework Tasks
Homework will be set within BGFL and will consist of 2 elements - a forms quiz that they should complete online and a task that they should complete separately.
- The quiz will relate to learning that has been taught within the lessons so your child will be familiar with the work and can use the resources, particularly the knowledge organisers, within their files on BGFL to support them.
- The research task will be an extension of a subject taught into the school and will be a significant person, concept and 'big question' that we'd like the children to find out more about. This is an excellent opportunity to discover more about the world and the people who have influenced it.
Homework will be assigned each Friday and should be completed and handed in by the following Thursday. ALL children MUST complete the daily TTRS, Reading and quiz each week.
Your child is aware of where to find the homework and the tasks will be explained in class prior to them being set. Please support your child's independence by encouraging them to think about what has been said within the classroom and where they would normally find this information - we promise, this will not be new to them!
