Our Learning


Homework Expectations in Blue Area


We ask that the children read with an adult 5 times each week. Please write the title of the book that your child has read on the correct day in their planner (Children can also do this themselves). If the children read five times in a week, they can earn a ‘Fiver’. Children are awarded ‘Reading Karate’ certificates and wrist bands as they earn more ‘Fivers’ throughout the year.

Children in Key Stage 2 are responsible for changing their own reading books and they are reminded to do this. Teachers will also provide regular opportunities for the children to visit the school library in addition to this, so that they can choose a book that they can read for pleasure.

Mathematician - Times Tables

Children should also practise the times tables that they are working on in school regularly throughout the week. 3 minutes every day using the Times Table Rock Stars app/website has been proven to be very effective. However, children can choose to practise in any way that suits them. This may include, chanting tables (EG three twos are six…) other games and websites, songs and rhymes, writing the tables out, quick fire challenges from an adult or using work books. In some instances, children may be sent home with envelope flashcards to support their recall of the facts.


Mathematics homework will be set each Monday on Google Classroom and should be uploaded by the end of the following Monday. Maths Challenges will link to the learning we have done in class in the previous week and will consolidate the children’s understanding.

Author - Spelling

Spelling homework will also be set each Monday on Google Classroom and should be uploaded by the following Monday. The spelling homework helps the children to consolidate the skills that they have been learning in school during the previous week. Children write their five spelling words of the week into their planner on Mondays so that they can practise these throughout the week.

Should children need any support with any of their homework, they are welcome to speak to their teacher throughout the week.

Enquiry Homework Projects

Children can choose one enquiry project from those suggested on the Enquiry Homework sheet for each new enquiry to complete at home. These projects can be uploaded onto Google Classroom or can be brought into school and will be shared and celebrated in class.
