Homework at Oak Hill Academy
At Oak Hill, all children are expected to complete basic skills homework for Reading, Spelling and Maths each week; this homework is compulsory. Compulsory Homework will be set every Friday and should be completed. It will be checked by their class teacher every week. This homework is designed to support and develop your child with their basic reading, spelling and maths skills. Children who do not complete Compulsory Homework will be expected to catch up in their own time (during playtimes or lunchtimes).
There is also the opportunity for your child to complete Enrichment Homework, which will be project based and linked into the topic that they will be studying during that term.
Please remember to check your weekly email for any additional information.
Compulsory Homework
Reading:
All children are expected to read their school reading book, daily at home. Each year group will specify how long your child is expected to read for each day. The children need to read their accelerated reader book and they can then record this in their reading journal.
Spelling:
Throughout the year, your child will learn spellings taken from the National Curriculum relating to their year group. Each week their homework will be to learn some of these key spellings to consolidate them effectively, so that they can use them in their writing. A dictation session will be given once a fortnight after homework spellings have been specified, to test your child’s application of the spelling rule.
Maths:
Every week all children will be expected to learn their times tables (the focus of these will change accordingly). As well as this they will be expected to complete activities on the Active Learn website that their class teacher will set for them. Go to: www.activelearnprimary.co.uk
The children then need to log in using their school username and password. The school code is: rr7w. Click on to ‘My Stuff’ and the homework that they have been allocated will be available. The children will have to complete Bronze, Silver and Gold homework in order to collect their coins.
Enrichment Homework
Enrichment homework, although not compulsory, is designed to support and extend your child’s learning about topics that are being taught, each half term, throughout the year. In the past, the children’s projects have been displayed in and around our school and have brought our learning environment to life!
If your child completes their Enrichment homework, their project will be used to create year group displays in the corridors and parents will also be invited to come in for a special viewing of the project displays each term. Projects will be research and task orientated as well as encouraging fun and creativity. Teachers will guide project homework with weekly or fortnightly tasks, although every child is encouraged to be as creative as possible.
Children who complete every part of the Enrichment Homework in a half term will be rewarded at the end of the half term and celebrated in assembly. Any child completing every project throughout the year (6 projects in total) will receive a special award at the end of the year to reward their commitment and hard work.
Homework Club will be available one lunchtime per week to provide an opportunity for children who wish to bring their homework in and share any concerns with or ideas with a member of our teaching staff. If you wish to have any support with your child’s homework, please contact your child’s class teacher.

Remember! The library in Feltham has lots of books and computers for you to use if you need to or you can pop along to Homework club on Tuesday lunchtimes in 6D!

Happy researching and be as imaginative as possible!

Year 3 Homework

I have been told that several parents are asking about the homework for this half term. I have now decided to attach the homework to the weekly email for parents and children to look at. Please let your child’s class teacher know if you need a paper copy. 

 

Well done to all those children who completed the second task of the Enrichment homework. The final task is…

Task 3: This task will require you to get creative!

To be handed in on Wednesday 13th December 2017

This part of the project is where you need to get your thinking caps on! Use your art and design skills to create a small prop or accessory for your chosen superhero or villain character, relating to a character from a narrative with a baddie. What you create is up to you, here are some suggestions:

•          A mask for Batman;

•          Captain Hook’s Sword;

•          Superman’s cape.

Year 4 Homework

This week, your child will have come home with our new spellings, which focus on the Year 3 and 4 statutory spellings. These are the words we will be focussing on this year and we will be expecting the children to learn how to spell them across the course of the year, so if you can take the time to learn them in different, fun ways at home. We will be adding more tasks to Active Learn, please make sure that children complete these (the children should all know their log in details).

Year 5 Homework

For the Enrichment Homework Project this term, you have the chance to be your own boss and set up your own company! You will be designing, advertising and creating a product relating to the theme ‘CHRISTMAS’- linked to our exciting Enterprise Topic! This process will be in 3 parts and is a chance for you to show off your DT, Art, ICT and persuasive writing skills.  This project will help consolidate the learning we are doing in class and will create an exciting and engaging learning environment (and will even be included at Oak Hill’s Enterprise Fayre!)

(Process 2 was due on Wednesday 29th November!)!

PROCESS 3: Due in Wednesday 12th December.

Make your Christmas product (or products!)!

You could use cardboard, material, paint, pens, a needle and thread or anything you choose to make your very own unique Christmas product.   These creations will be used to decorate your Enterprise stall during the fayre and entice more customers to your stall!


SPELLINGS:

The children have brought home with them spellings from the Year 5/6 word lists that they will need to know for SATs. We will be testing the children on Friday.

 

MATHS:

All classes have available, optional, Maths homework based on learning from the week.

 

We will be adding more tasks to Active Learn, please make sure that children complete these (the children should all know their log in details). I will be adding more games than usual this week- these are to be completed over the coming half term. 

 

Today your child has taken home a reading book, matched to their reading level by an assessment program. They have been encouraged to read as much as possible over the weekend to get back into the swing of reading regularly after a long summer! Together we can promote a love of reading.
