Homework:

Reading: The children are expected to read to an adult at least three times a week for 10 minutes. Please note in your child's reading record when they have read to you. 

Spelling: Children are expected to play a minimum of three games per week on Spelling Shed. They will be set an assignment linked to the spellings they learn in class or in their phonics group. In addition, they can practice other spellings by accessing "More Lists" and looking for lists that have been set for them. To access Spelling Shed, please click here:

   

Maths: Maths homework is now all online. The primary homework is to play Numbots for 5 minutes at least 3 times per week. This will help the children improve their fluency with counting and number facts. It starts with simple number recognition, moving through addition, subtraction and number bonds at a pace that is right for the child. They need to complete each level with two stars before moving to the next level. Their log in details are the same as TT Rockstars and are in the front of their reading record. To access Numbots, please click here:

Once the children are beginning to learn their times tables, they are able to use TT Rockstars to practice. Log in details are in the front of the children's reading records.  To access TT Rockstars, please click here:
