In Pipits, homework is set every Friday and is due back in the following Thursday. Homework consists of either literacy, maths, topic or science and is relevant to what the children have been learning that week. We also send home spellings (from Spring Term onwards) for your child to practise every week. We will send these home with their usual homework on a Friday and the children will be tested the following Wednesday in relaxed conditions.
Children are expected to change their own reading book in Year 1 and should keep a book for two nights; one night to read and gain a general knowledge and understanding of the words within the text and the second night to build up fluency and work on comprehension. This will support your child as they begin to tackle more complex words and longer texts over the year both at home and at school in our Read, Write, Inc. sessions.
We have a double PE session on a Tuesday afternoon but please make sure that your child's PE kit is in school at all times in case of timetable changes. We also ask that all items are clearly named.
