How is homework organised?

Homework is now focussed around spellings, home reading and Numbots. All homework will be sent on a Friday and be returned the following Friday. Children will have an independent read and a shared read. The independent reading book needs to be heard every night if possible with the shared read being read once or twice. At other points in the half term optional homework and/or activities may be handed out but they will be given on paper. Please post pictures on Google Classroom or Twitter @broadwayprimary.

What reading should may child be doing each week?

Reading – Your child should be reading at least four or five times a week. They have access to two guided reading books from the Teacher and are welcome to a free choice reading book. Please can you use the new reading record app to log everything that your child reads or listens to. The children can also upload books that are not school reading books. Books will be issued every Friday and will be given back by the following Friday.

How will spellings be sent home and what should I do with them?

These will start in the Spring Term. It is expected that they write each word out three times and then practise it using “Look, Say, Cover, Write Check” strategy. The children will also write one of them in sentences to practice putting the word into context. 

What topics will my child be enjoying?

Autumn 1 – Our school environment (Geography)

Autumn 2 – Traditional tales – how they have changed over time. (History)

Spring 1 –  Hot and Cold regions of the world. (Geography)

Spring 2 – Toys – how they have changed over time. (History)
