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.


For every read or piece of home learning recorded in their diary children receive a merit. These merits are converted into ‘Learning Loot’ that the children get the chance to spend their loot in the ’Homework Hut'.



15 pieces of homework = Bronze ‘Learning Loot’

20 pieces of homework = Silver ‘Learning Loot’

25+ pieces of homework = Gold ‘Learning Loot’


At the end of each half term, children visit the ‘Homework Hut’ and spend their ‘Learning Loot’. There are lots of prizes and rewards for them to spend their loot on such as pencils, bouncy balls, bracelets, rubbers, yo-yos, key rings and much more.
