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.

My Maths homework is set every Friday and is due to be completed by the following Friday.  Tasks set will be linked to your child's learning in school.  You will be notified via a text message if your child has not completed their My Maths homework.
