Keyworth Primary
& Nursery School

Homework at KPNS.

We have noticed that many of the children across school have not been engaging with the weekly and termly homework expectations set by school. All the children in Key Stage 1 and 2 have taken part in a special homework assembly this week to remind them of the expectations.

We have the following expectations of homework across school and would welcome your support with this:

KS1

  • Read to an adult and record in their home/school book at least 3 times a week. 
  • Stay in the green zone on DoodleMaths (roughly works out to about 30mins spread over the week)
  • Stay in the green zone on DoodleSpell (Y2)
  • Engage with Seesaw on a weekly basis. 
  • Participating in the reading awards over the term.

 

KS2

  • Read to an adult or to yourself and record in home/school book at least 3 times a week. 
  • Stay in the green zone on DoodleMaths (roughly works out to about 40mins spread over the week)
  • Stay in the green zone on DoodleSpell (All weekly spellings will be on DoodleSpell for the children to practise each week).
  • Engage with Seesaw on a weekly basis. 
  • Participating in the reading awards over the term.
  • Stay in the green zone on DoodleTables (Y4 only)
  • Complete allocated Reading Eggs challenges when set (Y5 and 6 only). 

 

Optional homework includes:

  • Having a go at some of the topic homework tasks blogged by the teachers at the start of every term.
  • Fast Phonics on Reading Eggs for KS1
  • Times Table Rockstars for KS2

 

We understand that, on occasions, there may be very good reasons why your child has not managed to complete their weekly homework. For these occasions, please communicate with your child’s class teacher so that they can support with this. You can do this through the class email addresses or request a call back via the school office.

We are also aware that, as parents (especially of the older children), you may have assumed that they have done their homework when perhaps they haven’t. Therefore, we will send out fortnightly reminder messages if your child has not yet completed their work so that you can offer encouragement or support at home.

Thank you, as always, for your support.
