Home Learning

Children in the reception class initially take home games to develop a sight vocabulary for reading.  They are also encouraged to look for small items for a sound table.  All children in years 1 to 6 will take home a list of spellings to be learnt for a test each week.  They will include “high frequency” and phonetically spelt words which are part of the English aspect of The National Curriculum. 

Children are expected to read regularly at home, reading scheme books are sent home by the school, but children should also be encouraged to share/read a wide variety of books both fiction and non-fiction. Children are also set regular Maths homework via MyMaths which is an online portal. The children have a unique log in to access the homework set by their teacher which will allow them to reinforce Maths concepts and learning recently covered. As the children progress through the school, additional homework will be set, eg research, English and topic based work.
