I would like to take the opportunity to outline the homework programme in Room 4.
Each week there will be a short scripture to learn, daily independent reading, Mathletics and spelling.
The weekly scripture can be either recited to me or to you at home. Please initial next to the scripture if your child says their scripture to you.
Each night I would like the children to do approximately 20 minutes of independent reading. They should record this themselves in the homework book, either as time spent reading or number of pages read. I will not send journals home: children can select their own reading material and can bring home books from the school library.
I will set some tasks for the children to complete on Mathletics and would like them to achieve 1000 points a week, although they may have opportunity to achieve points during class time too.
Spelling activities will mostly be completed at school but there may be spelling tasks to help children learn their weekly words. I have provided some ideas on ways to help learn spelling words.
In addition there may be other activities from time to time, such as preparing an item for oral language or topic related tasks.
Homework books will go home on Monday and should be returned to school on Friday. I would appreciate it if you would sign the weekly homework page to confirm you have seen it.
I understand that life after school can get busy and after school activities are important, so please let me know if there is a problem in completing the homework.
If you have any queries or feedback you would like to give about the homework you can either write in the homework book or email me firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you in anticipation of your support for the homework programme.
