Homework

Termly Knowledge Organisers and spelling grids are shared at the beginning of each term via Seesaw (Year 1 – 6). Children are given a homework book which contains the logins for the online platforms we use to support home learning.

Skylark Class (EYFS)

EYFS children take their reading books home daily along with their reading record. We encourage parents to hear them read daily and record this in their reading record. Phonics are also sent home in line with their learning in school.

Skylark Class (Year 1 and 2)

Homework is set on every Monday and is communicated to pupils through Seesaw.

Children should be practising reading regularly and should be reading to an adult daily at home which should be recorded in their reading record.

Spellings are based on high frequency words and phonics.
