Homework
Reading is such an essential life skill and has a direct impact into other areas of the curriculum particularly writing.
We want children to enthusiastic and passionate bookworms.. We want children to love reading. So please encourage as much reading as possible at home.

Children’s reading books will be changed every Monday. We expect the children to take part in some form of reading each day and for this to be recorded in their reading log. It maybe that a couple of time a week an adult reads them a story and then it is discussed or that a child and adult take it in turns to read pages of a book.

Maths / English homework will be sent out every Thursday and should be returned to school on Tuesday.

In addition, practising the following at home will really benefit learning:

  • counting forward and backwards in 2’s (0-20), 5’s (0-50), 10’s (0-100).
  • quick recall of times tables in particular  x2, x5, x10.
  • quick recall of doubles and halves of numbers up to 24
