Homework

Topic

Topic homework will be given out each term and will contain a choice of activities for your child to complete with you. Please choose at least three to complete each term. Topic homework can be brought in at any time throughout the term and will be shared with your child's class. House points will be given out as a reward for effort and quality.

 

Spelling

Spelling homework is now completed online using Spelling Shed. Click here to find out your child's spellings.
Spelling Shed
There will be a new spelling assignment set each week, linked to the spelling patterns your child is studying in school. Your child's username and password are stuck into the front of their reading record. There is a spelling shed app avilable for a small fee however it is free to play in your device's web browser.

Aim to play on Spelling Shed for 5 mins every day.

Your child will be tested on their spellings weekly in school on a Friday.

Times Tables Practice

For times tables practice, your child will need to log on to Times Tables Rockstars. This is set to Auto Training Mode and the tables they practice are automatically matched to your child's ability when they play in Garage mode. Click here to practice your times tables

Your child has their username and password stuck into their reading record. If you are having difficulty logging in, make sure you have selected North Borough Junior School as there is another Northborough school. As with Spelling Shed, The TT Rockstars app is available to download for a small fee but it can be played for free in your device's browser if you prefer.

Aim to play on TT Rockstars for 5 mins every day.

Reading

We expect you to listen to your child read a minimum of Five times a week but preferably every day. Aim to spend around 10 - 15mins listening to your child read and asking them questions about the text to check their understanding. Were there any words they didn't understand? How do they think the character's were feeling? Why did they act that way? What do they think might happen next?
This reading needs to be recorded in your child's reading record book and signed each time. Please mention the pages read and if the book has been completed so that we can keep track of your child's reading. There are prizes that children can earn for reading, such as stationery, books and in-school treats. The more times you read each week, the better the prizes to be won!

Top Tips for Successful Home Learning

With reading, spelling and times tables, the key is to practice little and often - every day if at all possible, but if not, certainly try on week days. This has far more impact on your child's progress than spending an hour or two once a week.

Find a time which works best for you and your family and try to establish a routine. Some find it best to do homework as soon as they get home, others just before bed or even first thing in the morning.

If you have any concerns, difficulties or questions around homework, please do not hesitate to talk to your child's class teacher.

 

PE

The children will need to come into school wearing their PE kits on a Thursday and they should dress appropriately for outdoor weather. On their other PE day, they should come to school in their uniform as normal as they will be doing PE in the hall in bare foot.

This term, each class has PE on the following days:

3MC - Tuesday & Thursday

3MD - Tuesday & Thursday

3LT/VP - Friday & Thursday

 

Class Assemblies

We will be holding some class assemblies later in the year. The dates of these are to be confirmed...
