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 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

Fancy a challenge 4R? Let's see if everyone can get at least a bronze award every half term!



Times Tables Rockstars - Thee 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.

Have you ever collected coupons from a cereal box? Maybe you were saving them for a book or toy? Well, when Dan and his brother decide to collect 100 coupons so that they can have their very own lion, they assume the task will be easy enough. How wrong can you be?! We will be reading There's a Lion in My Cornflakes, looking at advertising, writing persuasive letters and designing our own cereal!
