There will be no new spellings this week. I will be testing the children on 10 spellings selected from the ones they have had over the past half term. This will be on Thursday as usual.
I will not be setting any new homework or spellings now until after the half term holiday. Keep a look out in the first week back for a new homework grid.
Homework Autumn Term 2019
There is a slight change this year to how we are doing homework. There will be a number of challenges set on your child’s topic web. You can also find these challenges on the homework section of the website.
They work on a points system, complete as much or as little as you would like, the children who have collected enough points at the end of a half term will receive a certificate.
We would expect each child to aim for at least a bronze certificate, however we are not expecting any of the children to complete all of the challenges.
Every Friday morning there will be an opportunity for the children to share the homework they have done that week. This just makes it easier for me to keep track of who has completed which challenges.
Bronze Certificate – 50 points
Silver Certificate – 70 points
Gold Certificate – 100 points
I know this is new and may seem a little daunting at first but feedback came from the parents that homework could do with a refresh. So we have developed challenges that children can choose from and hopefully some activities that would be fun to do as a family. If you have any questions my door is always open.
Compulsory homework will comprise of a spellings, times tables and individual reading.
Spellings will be handed out on a Friday and they will be tested on Thursday of the next week. Each half term there will also be a recap test on a selection of all the words they have learnt over the half term.

There are no more spellings this term. Call back in September for more (remember to look in Class 4 next time!)
The homework I set last week was for 2 weeks so will be due in on Thursday 11th July, although we may start looking at any in earlier before then.
Thank you for a fantastic year, and have a wonderful summer holiday!
