Home learning

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.



In Year Three, children are expected to complete three pieces of homework a week. This can be anything from attending clubs, swimming lessons, spelling practise, reading, practising times tables, handwriting, topic research and helping at home. 



You will have lots of homework ideas for each topic on the back of every Learning Leaflet.

Each entry in your child's Home Learning Diary will receive one point.


45 merits = Bronze

60 merits = Silver

75 merits = Gold

100 merits = Platinum


Twice a year, the children's merits will be converted into prizes.

Please support the children with their learning at home as much as possible. 


We encourage children to bring their books back daily to have them changed, however we expect to see and change their books at least twice a week!

Home learning online
