Class 7 Literacy and Numeracy Homework
Each Wednesday, your child will bring home a maths and literacy homework book and a task from the book will be highlighted for completion. If there are any issues with homework, please come and speak to me so we can help. Homework Club is also available on Thursday lunch times.
These books have been purchased to support your child’s learning at home. Please help your child take care of their books. There will be a small charge to replace any lost books.
Homework books will be sent home on a Wednesday, to be returned the following Monday.
Weekly spelling lists are sent home on Fridays to be learned for a test the following Friday. Please support your child with these little and often rather than cramming the day before. The quicker something is learned, the quicker it is forgotten!
In addition to this, please ensure that your child reads every night. Reading aloud to an adult is even more beneficial for learning than reading alone so please try to make some time to read with your child.
Class 7 Theme and Science Homework
Due in Week beginning 25th March
Linked to our rocks and soils science, children are to take note of the rocks that they notice at home and in their locality. They are to draw or photograph the use of rocks and label it with the type of rock and the purpose of the item. Children who go above and beyond might begin to explain why that specific type of rock may have been chosen for that purpose.
Thank you so much for the support you gave to children with their recent volcano homework. We had a great range of interpretations of the activity and a lot of effort had gone into the various models.
Online Learning Activities
In a recent parent and pupil questionnaire, parents and pupils expressed an overall preference for the homework book format for homework. However, most responses also noted that online activities were enjoyable and provided an alternative learning style.
