Home Learning

All students in Years 1-6 should be completing homework every night. Below is a table that shows the time your child should be spending on their homework and the activities they should be completing. The activities below are compulsory and we expect every child to complete them each week. If your child has more time available, we strongly encourage them to revise the information in their knowledge organisers, which can be found here.

Accelerated Reader
What else can I be doing to support my child at home?
Your child should continue to read as widely as possible during their time off school.
Students are able to access their AR accounts and take as many reading quizzes as they wish. The teacher will view this activity and provide feedback. Not all books have got Accelerated Reader tests available online but many do. To see if a book has an AR quiz available, use the website below.
To log on to your child’s AR account from home, use the following link.

Accelerated reader: how to access from home tutorial

There are also a number of websites that offer free learning opportunities for children.
Twinkl is an example of one of these, which is giving parents the opportunity to sign up for a free month. The link can be found below. and enter the code UKTWINKLHELPS

Films for parents
Films for parents to help their child learn to read at home with Read Write Inc. Phonics are available on our website and YouTube channel. The YouTube channel will have a quick face-lift to help parents find the films easily. We’re adding a parent film to Facebook every day too.

These resources will be incredibly useful and will hopefully continue to support the learning of reading that children have been doing in school. Once again, thank you for your continued support with home learning.
