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. The school also buys into a Doodle Maths subscription
Our Year 2 and Year 3 children 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. Comments can be recorded in their blue or green reading record book. Information on the book bands can be found here. In Year 2, reading comprehension or phonic home learning is set.
The majority of children in key stage 2 read books from the Islington Reading Roadmap scheme. Children are expected to complete reading journal entries to reflect their understanding of what has been read.
Termly home learning is also outlined on the Topic Maps for your child. This 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. Children can also use google classroom to publish their written work.
