Homework at St Louis Catholic Primary School


Reading at St Louis Catholic Primary School

We at St Louis believe in reading for enjoyment with all aspects of reading being an important part of our school life leading to the children being independent and high attaining readers at the end of their time at St Louis.  With this in mind, we encourage the children to continue their journey at home by reading a range of age appropriate books. All children are motivated through regular reading challenges and events and their engagement and effort is recognised with certificates at reading milestones. We ask parents to share our commitment by providing reading opportunities for their children at home. In partnership with parents, we are able to provide the children with a strong foundation that enables them to reach the end of key stage 2 expectation of reading an age appropriate novel independently.

 

Reading at Home


In Key Stage 1, children take home books from the Oxford Reading Tree scheme with the opportunity to have these books changed on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Children have individual reading records to track their reading progress.

 

In Key Stage 2, children take home a reading journal to record each book they read. In class, they have regular opportunities to talk about and share the books they have read.



Spellings


At the beginning of each term, the children receive an overview with the weekly spellings linked to the rules they will be learning in class. We ask that parents to help their child to practise these spellings at home, a range of ideas can be found in our Helping Your Child with Spelling booklet.

Topic Challenges 


Each term we hold a focus week with a homework project linked to the activities being carried out in school. Further information is given as each topic week approaches.



Mathletics


To support their maths learning the children also have the option of using Mathletics independently and exploring the wide range of games and challenges that are available to them. At the beginning of each term, the class teacher selects appropriate activities that build on the learning in class.


Each child receives their own log in for Mathletics so that they can access it whenever they choose. ​

If your child is unable to access Mathletics at home please contact the school.
