General Information

Curriculum update

We will publish the usual information for parents shortly.

Homework:

Homework is moving online. We will use Teams/Class Notebook digital learning platform to set up homework. As usual, children will be given a piece of Maths and a piece of English work each Thursday and this is due in the following Tuesday (to be completed online). If there are any questions about the tasks set, the children can ask on the Friday or Monday to ensure it is completed by Tuesday.

Reading:

Please remember that reading is a key part of homework. The children are expected to read 5 times each week. Currently we are unable to send reading books home, but all our children have logins to MyOn online reading platform. Please follow the link below, type in the school name (Vane Road Primary School) and use the Accelerated Reader login details to access it.

Times Tables:

All children have a log-in for "Times Table Rock Stars", which will enable them to practise their 1-12 times tables and matching division facts at home. This is a completely free resource, which the children really enjoy, and can be accessed on any PC , phone or a tablet. It will greatly help them if they can use this regularly.

 

Spellings:

Children will be given the spellings on Fridays to be tested the following Friday. We will also share them on the Teams/Class Notebook platform. Scroll down for the list of spellings for Y5/Y6 according to National Curriculum 2014.
