Home Learning

Home Learning is usually set on a weekly basis. This is particularly important in the area of reading, as daily practice helps the child to progress more quickly. Spelling homework will be given out by your child's phonics teacher (probably at the end of the week). There will also be weekly maths homework, usually in the form of a My Maths. Homework will be given out on Friday and will be due back by the following Wednesday.

Morning Activity

Every day 8:40am - 8:50am

When children come into class there will be a task on the whiteboard for children to complete. There is no expectation for parents to stay, please feel free to leave once your child is settled.

Reading Volunteers

All parents (or grandparents) are welcome to come into school and help reading with children. Please let the class teacher know if you are interested, so that we can timetable you into the planning.
