Homework is obviously the best way for you to support your child at school.
Reading with your child regularly, discussing and asking comprehension questions about what they have read is essential. Please make sure your child reads with you at least 3 times a week and that you record this in their reading diary.
Children will be set weekly spelling activities. We learn one set of spellings over two weeks with a dictation and spelling test to assess.
Children will be set a times table to practise each week in their personal times tables book. This will be based on assessment from the weekly times tables test in class. Maths homework may sometimes be set to consolidate learning from class.
We set a range of topic and science based activities each half term that the children can choose from on Purple Mash. Children should complete 1 of these each week.
Our year 6 children are set work from their CGP revision books each week. This helps them embed their learning in maths and English in preparation for SATS.
Homework will be given out on a Friday and needs to be returned on a Thursday. Children will be asked to write a list of their homework in their diary each week. Children will be rewarded for completed homework by gaining team points and taking part in reward time. We celebrate exceptional homework; children can share their outstanding work with the class and receive dojos.
Our P.E. days for the autumn 1st half term are Monday and Friday. Children can come to school in P.E. kits on these days. Maylandsea P.E. kit is as follows:
We supply most of the equipment the children will need in class. We ask that they bring a named refillable water bottle each day. It is also a good idea to send a healthy snack in for playtime.
The children have access to a wide range of books here at school, but if they are reading something from home, they are welcome to bring it into school to enjoy during our daily OTTER (our time to enjoy reading) sessions.
Phones are not permitted at Maylandsea Primary School.
School finishes at 3.15pm. Children are asked to wait by the classroom until they see the adult who is collecting them. If you would like your child to walk home on their own, you will need to fill out a permission slip.
Emergency home learning:
Below are some home learning tasks that you can use if you find yourself needing to self-isolate. We recommend you do these alongside daily reading and times tables practice.
