In Year 7, you will have weekly Maths homework, reading, spellings, homework from another subject and termly Creative Curriculum homework.
Each week, you are expected to read 5 times at home. There is a space in you Learning Journal where you record what you have read, ready for it to be signed by adult at home. Every week, your TA will check your Learning Journal and keep a record of how many times you have read.
Spelling lists will be handed out on a Monday, and tested on a Friday. Practising little and often is the best way to learn your spellings. Aim for at least 7 out of 10.
This will be set on My Maths and, where possible, link to the work you have been completing in your Maths lessons.
This year you will receive a homework from a different subject each week. This could be a research task, pre-learning in preparation for a lesson or a worksheet based piece of work. You will get homework from all subjects next year in high school so this will be ideal preparation for you.
