Maths Homework Online – IXL

 

The children will complete their maths homework using IXL.  Children will be allocated homework on a Friday, based on what the class have been learning that week. It is expected that you supervise your child’s use of IXL, as completion of maths homework will be monitored.

Individual login and password details for IXL will be distributed and it is advised that you keep these somewhere safe.

 

Below you will find the appropriate homework for each maths group. These groupings are flexible and so please feel free to adapt which units your child does based on their confidence at the topic being studied. When your child logs onto IXL you will notice the huge range of skills they can work on. If your child is enjoying using this programme and wants to practise skills that are not set homework, this would be beneficial to them.

Reading Tasks and Comprehension 

The children will be expected to read with/to an adult and to complete a weekly reading comprehension task. As always, please write a comment in your child’s reading record once they have read or alternatively, as the children have reached KS2, they can write their own comment on what they thought about what they have read. Reading records will be checked every Thursday and reading tasks will be due in every Friday.
