Home Learning

As a school, we value the importance of supporting our children to develop the skills of responsibility, managing a routine and completing tasks within an expected time period. Our home learning tasks are designed to enhance our primary curriculum, which is much broader now than it ever was in the past.

We encourage all parents and carers to be actively involved in discussing your child’s home learning with them, so that they can benefit from your experience and enjoy a wider perspective.

Each week, the children will be expected to complete the following age appropriate home learning tasks:

EYFS, Year 1 and Year 2:

  • Reading – a decodable phonics book matched to your child’s level, which your child should be able to read independently
  • Reading – a ‘book of choice’, which may be out of your child’s phonic reach. These books aim to promote a love of reading and are selected by the children based on choice. These are for you to read with or to your child
  • Phonics – focus sounds and words taught in phonics sessions that week to be practiced at home (Please see parent workshops on our website for information)
  • We use Tapestry as a platform to share home learning as well as some of the learning children have been enjoying in school. To use this platform please use the following link Tapestry

Year 3 and Year 4:

  • Reading – read a book that is guided by your child’s ZPD.  It is expected that children will do this at least 3 times a week and answer questions in their reading records (specific stickers given to match the reading focus of your child.
  • TT Rock Stars - tables will be set to match each week’s times table focus.  There is a weekly challenge too where classes compete for the top spot on the podium.
  • Spellings – more information to follow after February half term.

Year 5 and Year 6:

  • Reading – read an independent book, guided by your child’s suggested ZPD. This needs to be at least 3 times a week and your child will need to record a comment into their reading record book. Each week, they will be given raffle tickets to celebrate this and half termly rewards shared amongst the class.
  • TT Rock Stars – every child now has their own log in for TT Rock Stars ( where they can practise and challenge themselves on their times tables. We will often have class and unit games set up and promote healthy competition within our unit.
  • Spellings – more information to follow after February half term.
