Homework and Knights Reading

written work 

Learning work is followed up through homework and Frenchville has a homework policy in place, which was last reviewed in 2016.  Teachers will communicate expectations at the start of each year but homework generally consists of participation in the Reading Knights Program, spelling and number facts drill and practice. 
 
We encourage you to discuss and check homework with your child.   It is our main priority that every child participates in our ‘ Knights Reading Program (PDF, 610 KB).  The Reading Knights program is a literature-based reading motivation and management program designed to encourage students to regularly engage in reading practice and develop a love of reading. Reading Knights are motivated to read or experience reading on a nightly basis and, as a result, progress steadily towards their quest to become a Knight Master.

Reading may take the form of independent reading, shared reading, listening to reading, reading along with a text, or being read to. Students are encouraged to select a range of fiction and non-fiction books suited to their reading ability for the Reading Knights quest.

Regular reading through the Reading Knights program allows students to explore, appreciate and enjoy the English language while experiencing a wide range of literary texts. The Reading Knights Program further aims to develop positive character qualities and work habits in students such as goal setting, determination and perseverance.
