Homework and Reading  

At Matchborough First School Academy we value the link between home and school learning and we want to encourage children to understand the importance of learning in and out of school.




All children in the school are rewarded for reading and for learning at home. They will receive a merit every time they read and complete some homework and it is recorded in their log.


15 merits = Bronze

20 merits = Silver

25 merits = Gold



Online learning at home
