Home learning

 

Home learning tasks will be set on a Monday, and are due in on a Friday.  This may take a variety of forms, depending on your child's class, individual needs, and their current area of learning.  Spellings are set weekly; each child has 10 words to practise at home as well as spelling sentences; these are all based on the National Curriculum word bank, and we appreciate your support in practising these at home.  In addition to this, it is vital that your child is reading daily, and that reading records are signed at least three times weekly and seen in school on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
