HOMEWORK & EXTENDED LEARNING

Homework

All of our pupils from Reception to Year 6 take a reading book home each day and must read this book at home daily. This regular reading practice is incredibly important for children’s reading development and also their wider learning.

Year 2–6 children receive weekly spellings to practise at home. Discussing the meaning of each spelling at home is really important to support the development of children’s vocabulary as well as their spelling skills.


Extended Learning

All of our subjects have a wide range of extended learning opportunities identified on our curriculum subject website pages. Please take a look at these extended learning opportunities and complete as many of them as you can each year.

Our school also has subscriptions to several particularly useful websites which provide further home learning opportunities in reading, writing, maths and science.

All children in Reception to Year 6 have access to a range of internet learning platforms. Please click the links below to go to these websites:

Children’s usernames and passwords for these websites are sent out to parents at the beginning of each school year. If you need a password reminder, this can be arranged easily. Please contact the class teacher or our school office and they will be able to get this information to you.
