It is more important than ever that we work together to ensure the children practise and recap on their work to catch up on any lost learning they may have experienced. We would ask your support in reading as much as possible with your child at home (ideally each nightl for at least 15 minutes) and also supporting them in completing their homework.

Weekly homework will be sent home in paper form each Friday. This will comprise of a times table sheet and 20 spellings. Each half term, a research piece of homework will be set. 

Spellings will be tested each Thursday. Reading books can be checked and changed each Monday and Friday. 

Don't forget, completing your homework regularly and handing it in on time is one of the TREE targets you need to achieve to be a golden apple. 




Children should continue to read for a MINIMUM of 15 minutes per day. Children can still quiz on the books that they have competed reading. The link they must use to quiz is: https://ukhosted78.renlearn.co.uk/2243097/
