Class Information

Homework

Homework in Class 2 consists of spellings, reading and a piece of numeracy work.

As well as completing a Maths homework task each week, the children will need to learn their multiplication tables. All children have logins for Times Table Rockstars (TTR) and are expected to use this or another suitable website, game or worksheet to help them learn their multiplication tables. This is a skill they can use in all types of Mathematics; including telling the time, doubling and fractions. They will be tested using TTR Maths sheets on a Friday with Mrs Fawcett. The Year 4 children will also take part in a Times Table Check assessment in June. 

Children will receive spellings to learn weekly. These are in accordance with the school phonics scheme or the Read Write Inc books they are reading at home and during their phonic lessons. Spelling test will take place on a Friday with Mrs Fawcett. 

We also encourage children to read at home daily with an adult and independently. The children have a ‘Reading Record’ to track their reading.

Sometimes, a piece of optional topic homework will be set for the children to complete to share with the class.
