Homework and Websites
Our Homework Challenges include a range of activities relating to the termly topics. Up to ten different activities are sent home for children to complete, to research and gain a greater depth of knowledge across the curriculum through creative tasks. Children are encouraged to bring their completed activities into school regularly to share with their class and display in their classrooms. The aim is for every child to complete as many activities as possible by the end of term.
As and when necessary, extra homework is sent home to consolidate and practise learning.
Children are encouraged to practice key learning skills, such as times tables, using the following online websites and resources, which are purchased by school:
Timestable Rockstars (www.ttrockstars.com/login) and Abacus Maths (www.activelearnprimary.co.uk), to improve their mental arithmetic from their individual starting points. Individual logins are recorded in reading records.
Children in Key Stage 2 should access Reading Plus (https://login.readingplus.com/) at least twice per week, to support them with vocabulary development, comprehension, efficiency and motivation through texts which are selected in line with their personal development.
