Home Learning

Children, parents and teachers working together is a priority for all children in the school to ensure the best possible outcomes.

 

Homework is an essential part of pupils’ learning. In line with National Curriculum requirements. Children are encouraged to establish good homework habits from the beginning of their school life.

Read the details here or watch the video to hear from Mrs Watson who will also explain how you can help your child.

Guide to homework

Children will bring home reading books every day. Please ensure these are returned when requested. In addition, children will be given tasks to support learning in English and numeracy lessons, and occasionally to extend learning in other subject areas. Homework tasks will depend on the age and ability of children, but in general terms the following can be expected:

Reception

  • Reading: all children will bring an appropriate reading book home linked to their phonic knowledge. Reading record books should be filled in daily so that you can share comments on progress and enjoyment with school staff. The staff will choose books for the children linking exactly to their learning. Once settled into school, children will also be sent home weekly phonics (sounds to learn) and high frequency words to read by sight. 

Year 1

  • Daily Reading books (linked to phonics assessments) will be changed once a week. Children have access to other books and can change these when they want to. 

  • Weekly mental Maths 

  • Weekly differentiated phonics or spellings (Common Exception Words and taught spelling rules) in English 

 

Year 2

  • Reading books (linked to phonics assessments). Once phonics is mastered children will choose appropriate books in their colour band independently. Books will be changed once a week. Children have access to other books and can change these when they want to. 

  • Weekly mental Maths 

  • Weekly differentiated phonics or spellings (Common Exception Words and taught spelling rules) in English 

  • Learning times tables using Times Table Rockstars (computer based tasks for times tables)

Year 1 and Year 2

  • Maths and English games on Purple Mash (optional)
