As a school, we recognise that attitudes towards homework can differ between households and we hope to seek a healthy balance when setting tasks and activities.
The schools end goal for all pupils is to have had opportunity to achieve the 3 primary elements of Academic Excellence, Aspirational Mind-set & Personal Development. Home learning and learning beyond the classroom plays an important role in this.
Knowledge & Skill development
Each pupil will receive a high quality workbook for Mathematics, Reading and Writing Skills (GAPs). Class teachers will set out the pages students need to do each week (see year group pages). This work will reflect the learning your child has been doing in school.
As well as this, we offer an online reading record for you and your child, and ask that reading is recorded 5 times a week outside of school.
Teachers and Staff also use this app so you can see how many times your child is reading 1:1 with an adult.
All students have access to the TTRockstars app to help your child develop fluency skills in multiplication and division through regular practice.
We expect all students to be using this 5 times a week for 5 minutes at a time.
Additional optional resources
Knowledge Organisers are provided in the year group folders on the website. They outline the core knowledge required for each unit. This would help support your child in building there understanding and vocabulary around a specific area of study.

Wider curriculum activities will be set termly. These are linked to topics with the purpose to foster a love and expertise for a particular area of the curriculum. e.g. Space or Coding
