HOMEWORK

Homework is important as it reinforces and challenges pupils’ learning.

 

  • Your child should read every night to an adult and have their reading record signed.
  • Learn their spellings. These can be found in their Home/ School Diary. There is space in their diary to "Look, Cover, Write and Check."
  • Learn their Times Tables and practice mental calculations.

In addition to this, more formal homework will be set on a Friday to be completed by the following Wednesday. If your child's homework is not completed by Wednesday, they will not earn any house points and be given an extension until Friday.  If the homework is not completed by Friday, they will have to complete it during Friday lunchtime.

 

PLEASE ensure your child has their reading book, reading record and Home School Diary EVERY day.

Thank you

Half Term Homework

Design a logo for our Catholic Family of Schools

Each half term, the Headteachers from every Catholic School in Doncaster meet to discuss ways in which our schools can work together to get the very best for every child, in every school.  We discuss what is working well in our schools and work together to help each other.

Some of the things the Family of Schools have organised are:-

  • Joint INSET days - training for teachers across the Family
  • Shared Mass and Collective Worship for all staff across the Family
  • Transition Days for Y6 McAuley School
  • Y5 Festival of Fun Days at McAuley
  • And much more ....

The headteachers have set a challenge across the schools to develop a logo to represent our Catholic Family of Doncaster Schools.

A logo needs to be a simple picture, which shows what we do.

When designing your logo, consider how it can show some of the words below ...

  • Catholic/Christian schools
  • Working together
  • Education/School
  • Sharing
  • Ideas
  • Worship

Please design your logo on a blank piece of paper and hand this to your class teacher after half term.  Make your logo large and clear - we can make it smaller after.  The top 3 logos will be picked and sent to the final draw, along with 3 entries from each of the schools.

There will be prizes for the top 3 winning logos

from St Joseph & St Teresa's.

Sheets can be found in blue books.

Times Tables

The national curriculum states that all children should know their times tables up to 12 x 12 by the end of year 4.  Please try and practise as much as you can.    
All children in St David's will be tested on their timetables every Wednesday. 

My Maths

Check out My Maths

If you have any issues gaining access to the internet at home - please ask and you will be able to access a computer at lunchtime. 

This homework is very important and can help you understand things you might not have deeply understood in the lesson.  If you do not do it, you are missing out on a valuable opportunity to practice what you have learned so that you can consolidate your understanding.  PLEASE finish any outstanding homework as soon as possible.

 

Bug Club

Log on to Bug Club.   If there is a problem please come and see me. Read as much as you can and remember to answer the questions because I check up to see who is reading and answering correctly! Have fun!
