How to help at home
Support your child with their reading by spending 10 minutes every day reading with them. Use the questions in the reading diary and encourage your child to keep a reading log. It is very helpful if you can sign their reading diary when you hear your child read.
Make sure your child has a quiet place to work.
Some key skills to work on at home include:
- number bonds to 20
- number and letter formation
- counting in 2s, 5s and 10s
- telling the time to the 5 minutes
- talking about fractions 1/2, 1/4, 1/3, 3/4
Useful educational websites include:
Please see the school website for information and resources to help with your child’s letters and sounds.
At the start of each Half Term, children will receive their topic based homework in their homework journal. This should be completed and returned on the day given on the information sheet in the journal. Please support your child with this - they love to share their learning on hand in day!
Spellings are also given for the half term and are tested weekly on a Wednesday.
Maths homework will be given on a Friday and should be returned the following Friday.
Although we aim to follow the timetable below, it may alter from time to time.
- Monday: Reading
- Tuesday: Reading
- Wednesday: Reading / Spellings tested
- Thursday: Reading
- Friday: Reading / maths homework
Written homework and spelling practice should be completed with a writing pencil.
Children are welcome to change their reading book as often as needed. Reading books will be checked on a Friday to see if your child is a Rocket Reader for that week.
PE will be on Wednesdays and Fridays this term.
Children need to bring their PE kit to school on Mondays should take it home on Friday to be washed. Your child will need a pair of outdoor P.E. shoes.
Long hair is to be tied back and earrings removed.
Please make sure your child has a labelled water bottle in school.
