Children now have a red folder to keep their homework records in. These will be collected each Monday morning and a new one will be issued for the week ahead.
In Year 5 children are expected to complete their homework each week by meeting the following requirements:
- 40 Doodle stars in maths
- Learn 10 spellings
- Complete the English task
- Complete the handwriting task
We estimate that these stars will take no longer than 1/2 hour over the whole week.
Doodle provides us with a more focused homework experience and we hope that it will take less time to complete than the previous homework format. We hope that these expectations will support children in developing a focussed work ethic which will support them in their learning and progression this year whilst also maintaining a healthy balance for their time outside of school.
Please do encourage your children to read 4-5 times per week - both online with our Oxford Owl login and with books they can borrow from school.
We also are continuing our initiative to collect 3 stars for reading and we are looking forward to seeing who will shine!
