To support home learning in Maths the following websites have some great resources:


Homework will be set each Friday.

  • Reading – pupils read a ‘scheme’ book (or novel if free-reader) with an adult at least five times a week. Please complete the reading record book your child brings home on Thursdays and ensure it is returned on Tuesdays.
  • DoodleMaths – pupils will be set activities to complete, based on in-class learning that week.
  • Spelling Shed - children will have access to Spelling Shed’s online platform where weekly spelling lists, set by the class teacher, can be found as well as games and activities to learn the spellings learnt in class. There will be a spelling test every Tuesday.
  • Library books and scheme reading books will be changed when the children have completed their book.
  • SATs workbooks, there will be three SATs books sent home with each child. Each Thursday, one activity from two of the books will be chosen for your child to complete at home and will be marked in class on the following Friday.
