We understand how quickly your children are growing up and we don't want to bombard them with lots of homework.  We expect the children to continue with the basics: readings, spellings and maths (these are explained below).  However, we will not be setting topic homework.   If your child would like to do some extra project work (e.g. researching a specific WW2, creating their own Anderson Shelter model or trying out some WW2 recipes), then we would really love to see it. There are also some excellent places you can visit to help them delve deeper in our WW2 topic, such as:

- The Imperial War Museum

- Dover Castle

- Chartwell

- The Cabinet War Rooms

- HMS Belfast

- Bletchley Park



Reading is still a priority in Red Admirals.  Children should be reading for at least 10 minutes, five times a week. Please remember that reading doesn't need to be restricted to reading fiction.  Many children prefer to read non-fiction books on topics that interest them.  Reading comics, magazines and child-friendly newspapers is also another great way to encourage your child to read.  Even if your child is a confident reader, it is hugely benefical to discuss their books with them and continue to develop their VIPERS skills (comprehension).   


Please click on the document below for explanations of the VIPERS skills and example questions to help develop their comprehension.

On Fridays the children will be given a new set of spellings to learn at home.  The spellings will be linked to a spelling rule, which will be introduced and discussed at school.  Please practise the spellings at home in preparation for a spelling test the following Friday.  The children should also learn what the words mean and be encouraged to use them in everyday life (where possibe).  



Please continue to practise times tables, having a quick recall of them will the children in so many aspects of maths and everyday life.  We won't routinely set maths homework but may set some occassionally to consolidate what we have been doing in class or put up links to videos for the children to watch.  We have put together a list of great online maths games and resources on our Learning Links page.
