Homework in the Autumn term consists of:
We strongly advise the children get used to completing some homework each night and create their own plan to help them to do this. It will be useful preparation for the secondary transition. We suggest a few spellings are practised each night, rather than just 'learnt for a test' on Sunday night! Homework is not 'a test', so we encourage children to ask for assistance when required. It is often helpful for them to discuss their learning with an adult. Any problems understanding the homework tasks should be raised with the class teacher before the end of the week.
We are pleased to announce that Year 6 are now using MyMaths as part of their maths learning programme.
MyMaths is an interactive online teaching and homework service written by experienced teachers for all the UK National Curricula. Developed for teaching, practising and assessing children’s maths fluency across the school. Each interactive lesson that is paired with online homework means you can easily allocate matching homework and quickly assess the impact of each lesson.
Differentiated homework tasks will be set on and accessed through MyMaths. These will be set on a Monday and are to be completed by the following Monday. Your child has access to MyMaths through a unique username and password (letters have been sent home). MyMaths can be accessed using a laptop or computer.
We recommend that you spend time looking at MyMaths with your child so that you can understand how it will benefit their learning.
To access Mathletics:
Sign in using the school username and password, followed by your own unique log on details.
The children will be given an introduction to MyMaths in their Computing lessons. For the 1st week, homework will include familiarising yourself with MyMaths. From next week onwards, tasks will be set.
