Homework

Each night children are encouraged to take home their reading books and reading records to practise their reading on a little and often basis. Children and parents are encouraged to make note of reading within the reading record, so home and school can communicate the progress of each child.

Additionally, every week on Monday, all year groups share a homework grid with suggested tasks via Class Dojo supporting with the consolidating of learning at home. Activities incorporate regular reading, core subjects and enquiry tasks across the wider curriculum.

Please see a selection of examples below: –

Online Portals
