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 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 5, we will be setting maths and English homework on a Thursday and it will need to be completed by the following Thursday 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.
