Home Learning

Please ensure your child completes at least 4 pieces of home learning a week. This could be anything from reading a couple of pages of their book, practising their times tables, SPaG or attending a club.


For each piece of home learning, your child will receive a merit which can contribute to a home learning award each half term. Please make sure you record their home learning in their home learning diary provided and ensure it is signed and dated.


15 merits = Bronze award

20 merits = Silver award

25 merits = Gold award

Times Tables Rockstars - The children will be tested on their times tables knowledge four times a week. Please ensure you help your child to practise their times tables and ensure they log in to Times Tables Rockstars daily as they will be given certain times tables to practise in line with the tests.


SPaG (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar) Friday - There will be a SPaG test every Friday. Please ensure your child completes their SPaG homework which will be given out on a Friday in their SPaG book.


Please ensure your child accesses Times Tables Rockstars, Letter Join and Bug Club at home as this will really help to support their learning and prepare them for middle school.

Autumn 1 Topic -

Snap, Crackle & ROAAAR!



Do you enjoy eating cereal? What is your favourite? 

Could you imagine eating 100 boxes of the same food for breakfast, lunch and dinner... EVERYDAY? Two brothers in our story really enjoyed eating cornflakes... to begin with. Find out all about them in our first topic.


We will be reading There's a Lion in My Cornflakes, looking at advertising, writing persuasive letters and designing our own cereal!
