Now your child is in P5, they will be encouraged to have greater independence and responsibility for their own learning. Therefore, spelling homework will be taken home on a Wednesday afternoon and returned the following Tuesday morning. This must be checked by an adult.
Pupils will write their spelling words on a new page of their jotter on Wednesday each week. At home they should use:
LOOK THINK COVER WRITE CHECK
to write out their new spelling words three times in neat columns. They should also complete a green activity card which will earn pupils 2 credit card points. An optional red activity may be completed for extra practice (and 1 credit card point) but is not mandatory.
Reading will consist of a variety of activities including Literacy Circles, Novel Studies and individual reading tasks. A library novel will also be chosen by your child.
Maths & Numeracy Homework
Maths/Numeracy homework will be given out on a regular basis to tie in with what has been taught in class. This will be handed out on Wednesday to be returned the following Tuesday morning.
There will be occasional homework for topic which may include individual research and class talks.
Please ensure homework book is covered. In P5 we expect children to date work, present their work neatly, and use rulers to draw lines.
Thank you for your support,
Mrs Roy & Mrs Watts
