Home Learning and How You Can Help



Maths and English homework - New homework will be set on Google Classrooms each Friday and is to be completed by the following Friday in children’s homework books.


Spellings – practise for the weekly test. Spelling tests are on Mondays.


Reading - encourage your child to read for 20 minutes daily (Please be sure to sign their reading record as they will be taken in daily and your child will receive a house point each time they show their teacher). It is important that you listen to your child read and discuss their books with them, even in years 5/6.


Mental maths – practise regularly. Children should know all tables up to 12x12. Any extra practice at home can make a big difference!
