Homework is used to enhance and support the learning which takes place in school; it should not be a chore or battle. Little and often is the best way.

Weekly Homework

  • sharing a book- daily reading is important
  • learning sounds and completing sound books (Reception)
  • learning weekly spellings and practising the Common Exception Words (Year 1 & 2)
  • learning multiplication tables (Year 2) 
  • CGP books (Year 2) 

There may be additional homework which may take the form of research or investigation, or if a child needs more practice in maths and English. However, this will be on a needs basis.

Reading Diaries will be checked every Tuesday and Friday so please make sure that they are in school on this day.

In class, we encourage children to read at home five times per week. Children who read five times per week will receive a dojo. 

Multiplication Tables

Year 2 will be able to access the Times Tables Rock Stars programme online. This will help them to practise rapidly recalling multiplication tables at a personalised level, ready for the Year 4 Multiplication Tables Check.
