Homework

Homework

 

Homework will be set on a Friday and is due in the following Wednesday. The details of each week's homework will be posted weekly below.

 

The homework will be set on Century Tech. There will be six nuggets for the children to complete (three maths and three English) based on what we have been learning that week. The children can login here: Century Tech Login Page.

 

Additionally, the children should be reading for two hours every week and should update their reading diaries daily with a summary of what they have read. Once they have read their book, they need to complete a short quiz about their book on Accelerated Reader. The children can login here: Accelerated Reader Login Page.

 

Each half term, children must reach 5 Accelerated Reader points. Every Friday, I will be checking and signing the children's diaries and monitoring their point progress. Therefore, they must bring their reading diary in on that day.
