Homework, Reading Records and Reading Books

Homework:

As we did last year, we will be uploading homework weekly on the blogs for you to access. In some circumstances, we will issues paper copies of homework to some children. In order for us to check the children’s homework, we have created individual Seesaw codes for the children, so they can scan their own code and take a photo of their homework to submit, and we will be able to see it in school. If you are unsure how how to use Seesaw, you can follow the steps below or watch the video:

To sign in with a Home Learning Code:

  1. Open the Seesaw class app.
  2. Tap “I’m a student”.
  3. Tap the blue “scan code” button and scan the Home Learning Code or type in your Home Learning Text Code. 

In year 4, we will be setting maths and English homework on a Friday and it will need to be completed by the following Friday morning. Your child’s work will then be checked by staff in school.

Reading Records and Reading Books:

Children are expected to read at home every night and their Reading Record bought to school daily so we can keep a log of who is reading at home for our Reader Leader award! When your child has read at home, the reading record can be filled in by the adult who has listened to them read or by the child themselves if they have read alone.

Children will choose books that are appropriate to their reading age, with guidance from staff in school, which will be sent home. They can also read books they have at home too. When they have finished reading a book from school, the child needs to bring it back to school so it can be returned and the child issued with another book.

The RSPB Big Bird Watch 2021

I have magpied this idea from Year 5 and I think it is a great idea for something to do this weekend!

We often think that birds are just something pretty to look at. However, they do a lot for the environment.

The RSPB is a charity that was founded in 1889 to ensure birds were protected in England, Scotland and Wales. It stands for Royal Society for the Protection of Birds.

Using the sheet with the pictures of birds below, spend some time outdoors or you can look out of the window (it can be 5 minutes every now and then throughout the day). If you spot any of the birds below, record your sighting. You can use a tally chart if you like.

Once you’ve completed your observations, you can draw a bird. Use the document below to help you.

Homework
:

As we are trying to avoid cross-contamination of objects between home and school, we are now going to be uploading homework weekly on the blogs for you to access. In order for us to check the children’s homework, we have created individual Seesaw codes for the children, so they can scan their own code and take a photo of their homework to submit, and we will be able to see it in school. If you are unsure how how to use Seesaw, you can follow the steps below or watch the video:

To sign in with a Home Learning Code:

  1. Open the Seesaw class app.
  2. Tap “I’m a student”.
  3. Tap the blue “scan code” button and scan the Home Learning Code or type in your Home Learning Text Code.

In year 3, we will be setting maths and English homework on a Monday and it will need to be completed by Friday morning. Your child’s work will then be checked by staff in school.

Reading Records:

As well, we will be sending home Reading Records for the children to keep at home for now. When a child has read at home, the reading record can be filled in as before, however, rather than sending the reading record back into school, your child can take a photo of their reading record (as shown above) showing us what they have read or leave us a comment telling us directly on the app. That way, we can continue to keep a log of who is reading at home for our Reader Leader award!

Reading Books:

For the moment, children will be choosing books, with the guidance from staff in school, within their class libraries, to avoid cross-contamination from different bubbles within the school. If your child brings a book home to read and finishes it, they can bring it back to school the next day and the book will be quarantined for 72 hours before being returned to the class library. Your child can then choose another book to read at home. Of course, a child can also read a book from home too! As well as physical copies of books, we have also signed up to Oxford Owl where children can access lots of e-books to read online (we can give guidance of what level books the children should be reading via your child’s Seesaw page). Here are the log in details:
