Homework Expectations at St. Joseph’s Catholic Primary School
We believe that homework should be purposeful and manageable. Homework set will be appropriate to the needs and ability of your child.
All children should read for 15 – 20 minutes every night. It is important for children to read many different books and then complete quizzes at school. This helps them improve and earns them points PLEASE SIGN YOUR CHILD'S PLANNER AFTER THEY HAVE READ WITH THE AMOUNT OF PAGES COMPLETD.
Children in Year 5 will be given spellings to learn at home each week. These will be stuck into pupil planners and displayed on the class page of the school website. Spelling Test for this half term are on Fridays.
Children in Year 5 will be expected to know all timestables up to 12x12 and be able to use mental maths facts to help with their claculations in class. Timestables and mathematical facts should be continued to be practised at home and should be supported by Freckle, TTRockStars and Numbots as online tools. Please see half termly information to help you support your child with what will be practised in school.
Children will be given the class prayer bag to take home for one week during the school year. The children are encouraged to share prayers with their family and record their experience in the book and materials provided.
