Home learning

We ask that parents support their child in weekly homework to help practise and consolidate the learning from school. 

We ask that parents hear their child read at home at least 3 times a week for a period of 10 to 20 minutes each time.  We would like parents to aim for 5 home reads a week.

Reading at home significantly improves word recognition, fluency and language development, enabling them to access the wider curriculum with greater confidence.

We also set homework on Purple Mash to be completed each week.  Please check your child's log in to see what has been set and what has been completed.  Homework set will always be an opportunity to practice and consolidate what has been taught at school.

Teachers can see who has completed the set work and will be able to see how well they have done.

In the unlikely event of a school closure due to an unexpected event, we may set home-learning to be completed at home for your child.  Whilst this can never match the face to face taught curriculum, we will do our best to set work that will be in line with current, ongoing learning or consolidate skills and knowledge.  Work will be set on our Purple mash platform.
