Home Learning Expectations

Reading: As a school, we place great emphasis on reading. Children are expected to read for a minimum of 15 minutes each day. Their reading must be logged in their diary, by writing a short summary of what they have read.  A team point is awarded for every entry in their diary. A raffle ticket will be awarded for five consecutive entries.

Home learning: The children will be set homework for Maths and Literacy on a Friday, and it is due the following Wednesday. This will either be written or via an online platform. We outline the homework in the Friday email, where we also notify parents of any changes that may occur. 

Spellings: Children are set weekly spellings on a Monday. These will be tested on the following Tuesday. They also have an EdShed login with games and activities to help them learn their new words.
