Home Learning

Home learning tasks are set every week :

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

Project Homelearning: 

We are learning about people who lived in the past. Your project challenge this half term is to make a poster/powerpoint about someone who you admire who lived in the past. 

Phonics / Spelling: Children from Year 2 will be given a phonics and spelling book and will be asked to complete specific sections of this each week.

Mathletics: Every child has a username and password for the Mathletics website. Class teachers will allocate between one and three tasks per week for each child to complete. This will either be linked to current class learning or the child’s personal targets. Usernames and passwords should be written in every child’s reading journal but can be requested from the school office if they are lost / forgotten.

Things to remember

PE is on Mondays and Tuesdays.

  • Remember to have your P.E kits in this days (including plimsoles).
  • Make sure you have leggings or tracksuit bottoms as we will be outside for P.E unless it is raining.
