Home Learning

2 home learning tasks are set every week :

Task Given out Due Back
Mathletics Thursday Tuesday
Phonics / Spelling Thursday Tuesday


  • to read to a grown-up every day
  • practice your phonics

Dates of Project Homelearning: 

Continue to work through the activities in the new grid in your child’s homelearning book. You only need to choose one activity per week. Not all of the activities need to be completed. Please enjoy! 

Mathletics is a great way to work on maths at home. Logins are in the front of their Reading Journals. 

Please keep enjoying books with your child. Ask them lots of questions throughout to support their understanding of the text. The children still benefit greatly from being read to by an adult as well.
