Homework

Children in all year groups will be required to do a little bit of work at home. Pupils may be asked to learn sounds, words, their number bonds, tables and spelling lists and maths facts as well as read on a regular basis. Some homework will be related to finding out about the topic the children are studying at the time. Learning Logs consolidate and extend work already carried out in school – feel free to be creative with these challenges and think outside the box!

At Morley Victoria we are very lucky to have parents who support their children with homework tasks and recognise their importance. Homework allows children to consolidate their own understanding and learn new ideas and concepts. It also allows them to develop good organisation and time management skills when they are higher up the school.

In Key Stage two we have invested in a planner for every child.  This is a good way of encouraging independence and helping the children to organise their time so that homework deadlines aremet.

Below is a general guide to the homework in each year group. Please note that it can differ from time to time depending on what is happening in school.

We would appreciate it if all parents would help by doing some regular counting of everyday objects with their children as well as helping them to learn basic number facts and times tables as these are vital to higher level maths. Doing some baking would help the children to learn about measures too. Higher up school, telling the time, budgeting their pocket money and helping with the weekly shopping would also be good to help develop good maths skills.
