Homework 1 (Reading books)

Every Monday-Friday your child will have a new reading book. The reading level of this book will correspond to the reading level they have been assessed at in school. Please find a good time to read with your child every night. On Friday send the book back to school ready to receive a new book on Monday. 

Homework 2 (Spellings)

Spellings will be given via Seesaw at the start of each week. There will be a test on these spellings every Friday so please help your child to learn these at home. The spelling pattern will also ben taught to the children in school throughout the week.

Homework 3 (Maths)

A maths activity will be uploaded onto Seesaw every Monday. This may be a computer challenge, a written activity or a problem-solving activity. As the children are still young it would be beneficial for your child if you could sit with them while they complete their homework to make sure they understand what has been asked of them.

Homework 4 (Reading Eggs-5 minutes per night)

It is also expected that your child will complete a minimum of 25 minutes of Reading Eggs per week to support them with their phonics and reading. It is an ongoing activity which enables your child to move up the levels as their understanding improves. There is no restriction on time!

Homework 5 TTRS

Times table rock stars is a fun way of learning times tables. Your child will move through the times tables as their knowledge develops. If your child is stuck on a times table, it means that they need more practise! This homework is optional but 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.

There will be no homework or spellings on the first or last week of every term. Reading books will go home every week.
