Each term or half term, during the first week, your child will be given a homework grid.The grid contains activities linked to all areas of learning (English, Maths, History, Geography, Science, Art etc).This workbook covers aspects of The New Zealand Curriculum, Level Two. It provides comprehensive coverage of the Learning Areas of English and Mathematics and Statistics.
We do ask that the work should be your child’s own work and should be completed to the very best of their ability.
The only other homework set will be reading at home and weekly spellings and maths facts to learn.
There are activities for spelling practice and handwriting skills.
Extensive use is made of New Zealand material and there are activities to help improve thinking skills.
Dear Parent / Carer At St Thomas we pride ourselves on our creative curriculum.
Each term or half term each class has a specific curriculum focus which the majority of our lessons link into.Every Friday you will be set one piece of arithmetic homework based on number and place value skills you need to practise.There will be 20 random questions that should take approximately 15 - 20 minutes to complete.The aim of the homework grid is to exceed their points target.We have discussed this in class, and the children understand how to select appropriate activities.We know that homework is beneficial to both children and parents, but sometimes children find homework ‘boring’, ‘a waste of time’ and ‘pointless’.To ensure work is consolidated and extended at home we are going to think about homework a little more creatively.Year 1 Homework Summer Term 1 Year 2 Homework Summer Term 1 Years 3 and 4 Click here to read about how you can support your child at home in Years 3 and 4.Year 3 Homework Summer Term 1 Year 4 Homework Spring Term 2 Years 5 and 6 Click here to read about how you can support your child at home in Years 5 and 6.Click here to read about how you can support your child at home during the Foundation Stage.Reception Homework Summer Term 1 Years 1 and 2 Click here to read about how you can support your child at home in Years 1 and 2.
