Due to quite a few children missing homework deadlines, homework will now be handed in the following day. If this is an issue due to clubs or commitments outside of school, please send a note in the following day explaining that another evening is required and this will be fine.
Other useful links to websites to use at home:
(Nrich Level 2 problems are Year 5/6 problems. Level 3 problems move into year 7 and will be suitable for children who excel in Maths).
Please read the following before completing the CGP homework books:
With the Grammar and Maths CGP books, the children will be set pages to complete. After completing the pages, the children are to mark their answers using the answer sheets provided at the back of the books. It is up to you, as a parent, whether you would like to mark their work as I know that evenings are often packed full of clubs etc, leaving little time for marking homework. The onus is really on the children to independently mark their own work and complete any errors they have made, clearly indicating that it has been corrected. The answer sheets can also be removed so that the children don't have access to them whilst working out questions; again, this is something to be discussed/decided at home.
Finally, please could you ensure that you sign the page (parent signature) to make it clear that the work has been completed as set out above before it is handed back in at school.
Year 5's (Soon to be Year 6's), please complete 2 pages minimum from your SPAG and Maths CGP so a minimum of four in total. You are welcome to do more than this but the idea is to keep those brains ticking over during the summer holidays and not impact too much on you enjoying yourselves!
Have an ace break and see you all in September!
