Homework is set on a weekly basis and includes reading, maths and spelling tasks that support the learning taking place in school.
We believe that homework encourages the children to take increasing responsibility for their own learning outside of the classroom. We reward children for the effort they show in completing homework tasks and regularly remind the children of what is expected of them. Homework task are posted on our web page which can be accessed when needed.
Children are expected to read independently at least 4 times a week. This reading should be recorded in their Reading Record Book (Monkey Journal). Children who meet or exceed this expectation earn a raffle ticket and are entered into the weekly book draw in Achievement Assembly.
This year we are encouraging the children to be more reflective about the reading they do outside of school. We have introduced a sheet to scaffold their skills in writing comments on their independent reading, which can be found inside the front cover of their Reading Record Book as well as on this page.
Children are expected to show evidence of their response to their independent reading at least 3 times a week.
A focus word will be shared each week which the children can use to guide their homework choices; this word will be displayed in class and on the website.
Times Table Rockstars
TT Rockstars is a website that allows children to learn and recall multiplication facts in a fun and engaging way. Developing fluency in this area will help them in all areas of maths and with all skills becomes easier with regular practice. Each member of Oberon has their own personal log in detail to access this website and challenges and tournaments will be set at different intervals throughout the year.
Below you will find the National Curriculum statutory word lists. These should be use alongside the spelling strategies taught in class to help children become competent and confident spellers.
Knowledge Organiser Tasks
Knowledge Organisers are shared with the children at the beginning of each new unit of learning. They provide key learning for the block including links to prior learning, key vocabulary and important information to support classroom learning. Children are expected to read their Knowledge Organiser and complete a weekly task based on this reading.
