Home Learning

Home learning will be set on Seesaw every Friday at 3:30pm and is expected to be handed in by the following Friday. For their Topic Home Learning, children will need to put their homework book into the designated homework box in their classroom upon completion.


Topic home learning is set termly and we would love to see as many tasks completed from the Home Learning Ideas Sheet as possible. We would like children to complete one task a week. This term our topic is Sow, Grow and Farm.


Spelling Shed is full of games, which are designed to encourage your children to develop their spelling of the year 5 and 6 curriculum words. Logins can be found in the front of your child's Reading Record book.


Reading Books will be changed once your child has finished reading their book. There is a box in each classroom for the children to put their book in. We would like to encourage children to change their book at least once a week to increase their reading fluency. Please can you ensure that you sign your child's Reading Record each time you hear them read. Children need to bring their reading book into school each day; even if it doesn’t need changing.


Bug Club is a great way for your child to continue improving their reading and comprehension skills. The bands correspond with the book band that your child is on in school and completing the quizzes by clicking on the Bug's face on pages throughout the books will improve your child's comprehension skills further. Logins can be found in the front of you child's Reading Record book.


Times Table Rock Stars and Numbots is a great way for your child to practise their times tables and number skills. Logins can be found in the front of your child's Reading Record book.
