Learners in KS2 will have weekly spelling tests on a Friday. For their homework they are expected to prepare for this and practise these spellings by using these words in ten sentences. There will also be a maths sheet. All Learners should also be reading regularly at home and talking about the books they have experienced. This will be checked on everyday and they will be questioned about the book they are reading to show understanding of the text. They will also be expected to recall their times tables at speed and the inverse of these as well.
