When will my homework be set / due in?

Your child is going to be set spellings to learn at home on a weekly basis.  The spellings set will link to the focus of the spelling lesson being taught that week and the number of words will be a maximum of ten depending on the level of difficulty.  The words to learn will be set via Microsoft Teams every Monday.  Your child can use a range of strategies to learn their spellings in readiness for a spelling test on a Friday.  In addition to spelling, the expectation is for your child to read at home daily. We will be monitoring their use of Accelerated Reader on a weekly basis.  Topic related homework will be set once a term via Assignments (linked to Teams).  Your child will be provided with a list of activities and we expect to see at least one piece of evidence of an outcome uploaded to Assignments by the end of each term.
