Homework

This page is for posting information about school projects and homework...

Each week this term, students are encouraged to complete the following:
  • Sight Words
  • Home Reading
  • Mathletics
In addition, students are also encouraged to prepare News topics to share each week. A variety of extra options to complete for Homework are available on the weekly activity grids for families wanting that option (scroll down to see below). This is an update to information communicated about Homework this term, following feedback from some families. We highly value your input so please let us know any further thoughts or ideas you have about homework and projects.   

Prepared News Topics




Sight Words
Students are encouraged to practice their Sight Words to assist them in mastering them and developing their overall literacy skills and fluency. Students in Year 2 will continue being tested weekly starting from the level they achieved last year in Year 1. If your child completed the Sight Words program in Year 1, they can use their Sight Words booklet for revision purposes. 

Year 1 students will begin at list 1 and will be tested on their sight word knowledge weekly.

Home Reading

Students are encouraged to engage in reading for 10-15 minutes each night, as per our MACC Primary Homework Policy suggestion (see document below). Home Reading books are leveled and go up to level 18.

Mathletics


Mathletics activities are updated to coincide with topics and content currently being explored in class. As we progress through the year, more topics and tasks will appear on our Mathletics login pages. We encourage the students to keep persevering with challenging tasks in order to improve their speed and accuracy. To go to Mathletics, follow this link and use the log-in card which will be sent home with your child's log-in details:

Extra Activities

Activity grids are provided to allow extra activities for students to complete at home. They may to choose to complete all or just some of the activities on the grid for that particular week. These will be sent home in Homework books and collected each Friday and returned to students the following Monday. This has been implemented following feedback from families requesting extra varied activities weekly.

Here is our first activity grid for Term 3.
