Welcome to Willows
Year Groups 4/5
In Willows class, we recognise the importance of reading a range of text types regularly. This is why daily reading at home is our main focus for homework. As well as fluency in reading, we will work on a range of comprehension skills in class using VIPERS, this could be mirrored at home by questioning and challenging children’s understanding of the texts they have read.
The class also has weekly maths homework that is set each Monday on TTRockstars.
