At Endeavour, we provide children will a number of opportunities to extend their learning beyond the school day. Children will be set the following pieces of home learning:
- Times Tables (Year 2-6)
If you have any questions about how you can further support your child with their learning at home then please speak to your child's class teacher.
At Endeavour, we would expect children to read four times a week and for this to be recorded in their home school diary and signed by an adult. Children will earn a raffle ticket each week for completing their four reads and they will be entered into a prize draw to win a trip to Waterstones with Miss Palmer.
In addition to their weekly reading children also have the opportunity to participate in the Reading Challenge details can be found in the links below.
Over the course of the year, children will participate in a number of projects. Children will be set home learning to complete alongside each project. Children will be able to select from a range of activities that are designed to engage all learners. If your child wishes to follow their own lines of enquiry this should be encouraged. All completed home learning will be shared and celebrated with the class. All home learning tasks will be sent home as a hard copy and uploaded to the school website.
Children in Year 1-6 will be set weekly spellings. These will be sent home on a Friday and tested the following week.
Knowing all times tables (and their associated division facts) supports mathematical learning and understanding and those children who have a strong grasp of them tend to be more self-assured when learning new concepts.
At Endeavour we have a Bronze, Silver and Gold system that indicates the children's understanding:
Bronze- able to recite in order
Silver- able to quickly recall in any order
Gold- able to quickly recall the associated division facts in any order
Year 2- 2, 5 and 10
Year 3- 3,4,6 and 8
Year 4- all times tables
Year 5 and Year 6- working on speed and accuracy as well as associated division facts
Times table Rock Stars
At Endeavour, we have paid for a subscription to TTRS for all children in key stage 2 (Year 3-6). This can be used at home to support them in learning their times tables and associated division facts.
