All your child’s homework can be found on Showbie in the homework folder.
Task Homework – This is a task that we encourage the children 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 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 over the weekend. The children will complete their Just Write on a Wednesday so it is crucial that this homework is done by all children. This homework in is the only homework we expect all children to complete each week. Other set homeworks are optional but we strongly recommend that you engage with all, each week.
Spellings – Each child will be set new spellings on a Friday. These words will be linked to the Year 2 spellings. 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 every week.
MyMaths – Children will be set a new MyMaths challenge each Friday. This usually correlates with the learning from that week.
Reading – Ideally, we would like the children to be reading regularly at home throughout the week. We would recommend trying to read at least 5 times in a week. Each session can be one page if necessary but regular practise is vital for learning.
