Welcome to the Wolves page of the Southery Academy website.
Important information for Wolves class.
Children will have to complete homework every week (completion of a task of their choice each week), and will also have a weekly set of spellings to learn. We also expect that children will regularly practice their number bonds and times table facts, and be heard reading by an adult at home.
The homework we set is largely done to consolidate the learning the children have done in class. Please do not do it for them but we encourage you to show a supportive interest in what they are doing. In mathematics work, please make especially sure that you do not encourage them to use calculation methods which are not suitable.
When you hear your child reading, please go for quality rather than quantity – just a few pages from their scheme book each evening, rather than trying to get through the whole book in one go. Please remember to correct any errors they make, encourage expression and fluency, and make sure you discuss what they have just read with them (which helps develop those important skills of inference and deduction).
Thank you for your support.
Mr A Cawley
