Homework Help

Reading – Across the school, we prioritise reading as the main way in which you can support your children at home. Please read with your child daily, ideally for 20mins. Reading comments can be recorded in their reading records.

Spellings – Years 1 – 6 get weekly spellings to practise at home. These are handed out on a Friday and spelling tests will be the following Friday. Please make sure your child understands how to use each of these words in context. Practising them in sentences is a great way to secure their understanding.

Mathletics – Children in years 1 – 6 will get maths activities set weekly on Mathletics . All children have a login which is stuck in their reading record. There are lots of other activities and games on Mathletics for them to do once they have completed their weekly tasks.

Topic work – Each term, a topic web is sent out explaining what your child will be learning. Children are asked to complete 3 projects across the term that are linked to their topics or other learning in school. These projects can take any form and are an opportunity for children to further their learning in a way that they find most enjoyable. Projects in the past have included: Powerpoint presentations, models of landscapes /famous landmarks, paintings, non-fiction reports and even a life-size Egyptian sarcophagus!!
