Homework will consist of Reading, Grammar and Arithmetic and it will be published on Seesaw every Friday. This needs to be completed electronically by Wednesday. If the children cannot manage to complete the homework by Wednesday, they will be given access to an IPAD during break time on Thursday or Friday to complete it, so that they have the same chance as the other pupils to consolidate their learning and bridge any gaps.
(the login details for SeeSaw are stuck inside your children's Reading Journal).
Reading plays a major role in your child' development and progress across all subjects.
Evidence suggests that children who read for enjoyment every day not only perform better in reading tests than those who don’t, but also develop a broader vocabulary, increased general knowledge and a better understanding of other cultures. In fact, there’s evidence to suggest that reading for pleasure is more likely to determine whether a child does well at school than their social or economic background.
Reading improves the pupils' concentration, their understanding of the world and develops their creativity while allowing them to deepen empathy. Ideally, in order to get the most benefit from reading, your child should read at least 5 times per week, even just a couple of pages.
