Times Tables Rockstars
Children are expected to complete a minimum of five minutes a day on Times Tables Rockstars.

Spellings are handed out on a Friday and tests will happen as part of our spelling lesson the following Friday. If spelling homework is not completed by Friday it will be completed at playtime.
Children are expected to read for a minimum of 10 minutes a day to an adult. Please make a note in your children’s reading record. After 100 nights of reading you will be presented with a brand new book from our prize book cabinet!
It is really important that the children read their reading scheme book out loud, to practice fluency and expression. Please do ask your child lots of questions about the text, in order to develop their understanding of the plot, characters, setting and vocabulary. Many of the books have key sounds, words and vocabulary inside the front cover to read together before reading the book, and at the end of the book, many have comprehension style questions.
It is also important that the children still hear you read to them regularly, using a book that maybe beyond their level of fluency.
For each Humanities theme covered (History or Geography) children will receive a Humanities Homework Grid. This will offer a range of activities linked to different subjects all connected with our Humanities theme. The expectation is that children will complete a minimum of four activities across each half term. This homework will be celebrated in school with a showcase afternoon.
