Home Learning for Years 2-6
Weekly homework for years 2 to 6 is given out on a Wednesday afternoon for children to return the following Monday morning.
Maths home learning consists of arithmetic questions to help children develop procedural fluency with numbers. Tasks are also set on Mathletics to consolidate the strand of Maths that was taught in class that week.
English home learning in years 3-6 involves the completion of reading domain tasks linked to borrowed books from the Islington Reading Roadmap scheme. Children who are in Key Stage 1 or in Years 3-6 that have not yet progressed on to the the Islington Roadmap scheme, take banded books home, matched to their reading proficiency levels. If your child has a banded book, it is vital that you provide support by listening to them read daily and making comments about how they engaged with the book. Comments should be recorded in their blue or green reading record book. Information on the book bands can be found here. Each book band has a set of specific reading targets and teaching points which can also support you.
Termly home learning is outlined on the Topic Maps for your child. It involves project work linked to the topic for the term. This is usually due at the end of the first half term. Children are also expected to complete 3 pieces of writing, based on the termly topic for their phase and this is due at the end of the second half term.
