Homework is set to reinforce the learning that we do in class. Children should be able to tackle the work set, without any difficulty. It shouldn't take more than about 20 minutes. If they are taking a lot longer, or are having real problems - please let me know and I can go though it again with them in class.
Homework is usually set on a Friday and is to be completed by the following Friday. Please write a note to explain why homework is incomplete, due to other commitments, as I understand that life can be quite busy at times.
In addition, children are expected to be learning their times tables at home. I will be testing them at least once a week. They need to know division facts as well e.g. How many 3s in 12? They need to learn their tables, one at a time in this order:
10x 2x 5x 3x 4x 8x 6x 7x 9x 12x
This will prepare them for their statutory Year 4 times tables test.
We will also be setting a weekly BATTLE on
