Welcome to St George!

Now that your child is in Upper Key Stage 2 please encourage them to take responsibility for their behaviour and learning and help them understand this is fundamental to their future at secondary school and beyond.

We would be glad to speak to you at a convenient time about any queries you or your child has throughout the year, please catch us at the end of the day or speak to the office to arrange an appointment.

Homework in UKS2

Children receive four pieces of homework a week and this is to support and extend their learning in school and to prepare them for the increasing amount at secondary school.

  • Homework: 

              Comprehension: set Monday and due Wednesday

              Maths with a number fluency focus and CCQ: set Wednesday and due Friday

              Writing/ GPAS: set Friday and due Monday

              Spelling: set Friday to Friday

  • Each piece should take approx 40 minutes, if they struggle to complete the homework in this time please add a comment and initial
  • All homework should be completed in blue or black pen and be to a satisfactory standard and presentation for your child
  • Children will need an A4 ring bound folder to store all homework in and this will need to be brought into school and go home daily. School can provide, please let us know if you need one
  • We are aware that the curriculum and also the methods we use to teach change over time and some of our parents may find it hard to support their children with homework. All the homework we set the children we believe they are able to complete, although it could be a little bit challenging. If your child has tried hard but still really struggled please encourage them to speak to their teacher who will find some time to support them with this
  • If children do not complete homework then they will attend homework catch up club on Friday from 1.30 – 2 pm. This will be run by a Teacher and children will have to complete the tasks missed independently without support
  • The aim of the homework we set is to give children a chance to extend or consolidate important learning from class and also to prepare our children for their transition to secondary school. We really hope you will support us in our efforts.

 

Children have set school uniform and P.E. Kit which should be in school at all times.

School uniform: white shirt / polo top, plain trousers / skirt, blue jumper / cardigan and flat school shoes

P.E. kit: White t shirt, dark shorts and jogging bottoms, plimsolls or trainers and no jewellery

 

All children should have a water bottle in school. 

Remaining hydrated throughout the day helps children stay focused on their school work.

 

 

We thank you in advance for your help and support this year, the UKS2 team.
