Welcome to Hedgehog Class
Homework is obviously the best way for you to support your child at school. Reading with them regularly, asking them comprehension questions and helping with their spellings are essential. All children have weekly spellings, connected to their Letters and Sounds phase, which is stuck into their diaries each week. They will also receive a ‘look, say, cover, write, check’ sheet, in their homework folder. Additionally, either a maths sheet will be sent home (in the folder) or it may be set online, https://www.activelearnprimary.co.uk/login. Children will have their login ID in their diary shortly. The school code is ‘mayl’, and children should all know their passwords (if stuck, ask your class teacher).
Every 2 weeks, we will be completing a ‘little write’ on a Friday, therefore we may ask you to complete some talking homework beforehand, preparing them for it. Year 2s will have comprehension or grammar sheets on the alternate weeks, when talking homework is not done.
At some points during the year, usually over a holiday period, we may give project homework for the children to complete in the format of their choice.
Reading, spelling and homework activities will be monitored every week and house points allocated when homework is completed. Homework is sent home on a Friday and is due in the following Wednesday.
