Reading is part of our English homework. You should be reading at least 3 times per week at home.

Miss Pettit also posts the weekly sounds we are learning onto Class Dojo each week. Please practise these at home too.


Maths homework to practise their Learn Its which will be tested on Thursdays. These are key facts the children need to learn instantly and they will need to score full marks on their challenges two weeks in a row to show competence at that level and then they will move on to the next set of Learn Its. The aim is to beat their score each week. Please see the link below if you would like to see more about the progression of the  Learn It challenges and print these off at home to practise.

Children are expected to read at least three times a week at home.

Please note this down in your child’s reading diary with the book title, pages read and your initials. When reading with your child, reading a short text and using the reading bookmarks, which will be given out this week, is the best way to help the children advance with their reading so they can develop their comprehension and answer questions on the book.
