Home Learning 

It is really important that your learning doesn't stop at school. It can be fun learning at home. Make sure you look at the homework sheet every term but also just for fun you could do some work on your own and bring it in for us to see.


  Here are some very useful website links, resources and ideas of activities for you to use at home to help with your learning when you are not at school or with your homework.




READING  It is really important you read at least 3 times a week and continue to record this in your organiser alongside a short summary. This will still count towards any current reading challenges in school. If you were to do 10 minutes a day, your reading would continue to make good progress. Have a good search through the books you have at home and find examples that you think would be challenging. Don't forget that reading recipes and instructions for games are good chances for reading practice too. Other examples are comics, magazines, journals, newspapers and online blogs.


Inside the organiser, there are a small number of resources which can be used to help further develop the children's learning of shapes, spellings, times tables and many other things.


Remember to practice your times tables and spellings weekly as you will be tested on these weekly.
