All your child’s homework can be found on Showbie in the green homework folder.
Task Homework – This is a task that the children will need to complete. This will be linked to prior learning or to support the children in their learning for that week.
Often the task homework will be something for you to practise practically or to talk through rather than written work that needs handing in. However, if is does need handing in, it can be submitted in a variety of ways depending on what suits the task. You can choose how you would like to submit it.
- Children can complete the homework on paper and hand a physical copy in to the teacher (if they are not isolating), alternatively they can take a photograph of their work and upload it to Showbie.
- They could also complete their homework on Showbie using the annotation tools.
- They could use different software e.g. MS Word, PowerPoint etc and upload the document from their computer to Showbie.
Just talk – This will be sent home on a Friday for the children to talk about. The children will complete their Just Write on a Tuesday.
Spellings – Each child will be set new spellings on a Friday. These words will be linked to the phonics sounds that the children have learnt during the week. There will not be a spelling test on these words but it is important that the children have opportunities to practise these spellings at home.
MyMaths – Children will be set a new MyMaths challenge each Friday.
Reading – Ideally, we would like the children to be reading regularly at home throughout the week. We would recommend truing to read 5 times in a week. Each session can be one page if necessary but regular practise is vital for learning.
