Standards and Expectations
Moving into KS2 is a significant step up, the children will have their own locker, allowing them the opportunity to take a greater responsibility for their own belongings. They are expected to have a higher level of independence and take greater responsibility for their learning and are encouraged to be well prepared and organised during lessons. Everyone is encouraged to try their best and contribute fully to class life. They are expected to be well behaved, polite and helpful at all times and follow our `Class Rules’.

Each child is assessed individually and given a reading range from which to choose their books in order to ensure the material is suitable for their current reading level. This will be reviewed and updated regularly. Children will be allowed to choose their own books, within their reading level, from the class reading corner to read both in school and at home, to an adult. Children are expected to read every day at home and a comment written in their reading record at least three times a week. After they have finished their book, the children will be able to complete a short quiz to assess their understanding of what they have read.
Key Stage 2 Homework
All homework will be set on a Monday on Teams and needs to be completed by the following Monday.
Reading- Children will be asked to read daily at home and for this to be noted in their school reading record. The names of the children who read 25 times in a half term or more will be entered into a raffle with the chance of winning a prize!
Maths- Maths tasks will be set on Teams. These will vary between MyMaths or a choice of differentiated tasks.
English- A reading comprehension, writing or grammar task will be uploaded onto Teams.
Spellings- Children will be set weekly spellings on Edshed. They will be appropriate to the stage of development they are at. These will also be uploaded to Teams. Spellings will be tested every Friday morning.
Times Tables- Please continue to practise times tables. This could be done using platforms such as Times Table Rock Stars or Maths Shed (found on Edshed). Times tables will be tested every Friday morning.
If you need to speak to the class teacher about any aspect of your child’s schooling, please do not hesitate to contact the office to arrange a telephone appointment.
