Homework Expectations in Lawley Class

During the year, we ask that children work on three important aspects at home for their homework.  These are:  Reading, Spelling and Times Tables.  These are all focussed and taught in class during the week and when revisited and practised at home it supports the children’s learning and progress enormously.

Reading:  We encourage all children to enjoy reading for pleasure.  During the week the aim is complete 4 reads at home.  This should be recorded in the Home/School Link book by an adult and handed in every Friday.  If 4 reads are completed each week, the children get a star sticker on their bookmark and a Classdojo point.  Once the children have obtained 4 stickers they are awarded a small prize.  Once your child has finished reading their book, they are encouraged to change it (which they do independently) and complete an Accelerated Reader quiz.  As parents, you can track their progress and achievements in the quizzes.

Spelling:  Spellings will be set every Monday on Spelling Shed and it is expected all children complete 15 games online.  Classdojo points are awarded for children who complete all 15 games.

Times Tables:  Times Tables homework will be set every Friday on Times Tables Rock Stars and it is expected that all children will complete 15 games online.  Classdojo points are awarded for children who complete all 15 games.  The aim of doing Times Tables is that it not only supports your child with other areas of maths but that they know their times tables facts fluently by the time they are Year 4.  Your child also has access to Maths Shed to support many other maths skills throughout the curriculum.

Completing the homework regularly helps your child prepare for their next stage in Primary School as well as Secondary School.  It encourages them to take on the responsibility themselves for their own learning and progress.

If you have any questions about the homework or need help accessing any of the online resources, please ask.


Please support your child by listening to them read each night and help them practise any spellings sent home. This year the children will have the opportunity to practise their spellings at home online, using the Spelling Shed App!

Children will have frequent times tables quizzes in school. Regular time spent on Times Tables Rockstars last year had a big impact on the children’s accuracy and fluency of multiplication and division facts.  Please encourage your child to use their logins at home as often as possible. The children need to know all tables facts by the end of Year 4!
