Homework 1 (Reading books)

Every Monday and Thursday your child will get a new reading book. The reading level of this book will correspond to the Read, Write Inc. level they are working at in school. Please find a good time to read with your child every night.  

Homework 2 (Numbots)

Numbots is a fun way of learning the rudiments of maths. Your child will only be able to move up a level when they have reached a high enough score at that level. If your child is stuck on a level it means that they need more practise! This homework will really help your child to secure the fundamental concepts in a fun way.

The login details for all of the children's accounts can be found inside their reading records but if these go missing, then please do not hesitate to contact the school office.

 Reading books will go home every week.
