Fielding Primary School and Nursery


  • Homework books.  Please remind your child that they should be marking their home learning in their maths and grammar books each week. We are finding that an increasing number of children are not doing this.



Home Learning

Top education researchers tell us that homework has minimal impact for primary age pupils, unless it requires children to rehearse and practise.  We have therefore adapted our routines to reflect this. The routines for children in this year group are as follows:

  • Reading and/or talking about their reading to an adult for at least 20 minutes, 5 times a week. This will be evidenced through reading being recorded in reading records. Reading records and reading books should be coming into school daily. Reading records will be signed by teachers to check regular reading is occurring.
  • Learning spelling patterns linked to age-related expectations ready for use in dictation towards the end of every week. These spellings will be on year group notice boards and should be practised at home. Dictation (recorded on sheets) will now be sent home weekly in reading folders so you can see achievement and progress.
  • Reciting multiplication tables to increase their fluency so that they can be applied in other areas of maths and problem solving. These will be  tested in our weekly times tables challenge and will be sent home.
  • Half-termly creative home learning will be set at the start of each half term and will celebrated and fed back on during our creative home learning showcases.
  • In order to prepare pupils for high school, our older pupils will continue to to have homework set for Maths and Grammar from the CPG skills workbooks.

Purple home learning books will no longer being used as practice can be done at home. You will be able to see achievement and progress through the dictation and times tables challenge sheets going home weekly. You will also be able to witness progress through class exercise books for English and maths being sent home once during every half-term.



This week we would like your child to practice reading and spelling words that end in -ance.

The creative home learning for this half term is based around our new learning challenge topic What is so special about the USA?

Learning this week


Children have been editing their first drafts using the RUBRIC. This allowed children to have the opportunity to make their story better before writing and reflecting on their final draft.


This week in Maths, we have been focusing on addition and subtraction word problems. Children have been 9introduced to questions that may appear on their progress test.

Fielding Learning Challenge Curriculum (FLCC)

In FLCC, we have been looking at Andy Warhol. We found out his background and how his art has inspired others. Children had an opportunity to create their own style of Andy Warhol with pencils and oil pastels
