Years 1 & 2

Children in Years 1 and 2 are expected to share a book with an adult each night.  This may be your child reading a few pages of their book to you or sharing a book together.

Each Week your child will be sent home spellings to learn.  These are the focus words that your child is also working on in school.  These are given out on a Wednesday and assessed in school the following Wednesday.

Each half term your child will be sent home with a selection of English and Maths tasks to complete each week. One week they will pick from the English activities and the other week  from the Maths. They are expected to hand in their homework books each Thursday so that their work can be celebrated in class.

Years 3 & 4

Each half term your child will be sent home with a selection of topic linked tasks to complete. Homework will be set each Friday and should be returned to the class teacher by the following Thursday.

Maths homework is set using MyMaths and the children have home access to Times Tables Rockstars.

Spellings are given out each Friday, to be learnt by the following Friday.
Your child should also read regularly at home, ideally with an adult.

Years 5 & 6

Children are expected to read for 15 minutes each day and complete the home reading book once a week.

English homework will be set each Friday and will correspond with our current topic. English homework is to be completed and returned the following Friday.

In addition to this, weekly spellings are also given out. My Maths is set weekly. To complete your My Maths tasks, click on the logo below:
