This year we have established the following guidelines and expectations around 3/4 student’s homework.

Students need to

  • READ for at least 30 minutes every night. Book titles need to be recorded on the title tally list in student’s homework books.
  • One summary per week about the book that students are currently reading.
  • Select one new word from their just right book to investigate, in order to expand their vocabulary. The outline of the aspects of the word they need to investigate is added below.
  • Expanding Our Vocabulary Homework outline-1dsn26y
  • HOTmaths tasks will be given every couple of weeks. Students will be told when a task is “live”. Students can go onto HOTmaths to revise at anytime by navigating the website.
  • Homework should be handed in on Fridays and books will be returned on Mondays.


Identify features of online texts

With a partner, explore the two websites below.  Collect and record facts about frogs in your reading book -colour code the facts according to what text you got the information from.

After you have finished exploring the two web pages, ask yourself:

  • Which text gave you better/ more information?
  • What was different about reading the first text compared to the second?
