Home Learning

We will be looking for children to be reading at home with their parents or carers. Listening to children read will enable them to grow in confidence as they become fluent readers. 

We encourage your child to complete as many of the activities from the menu as they like at home, but NO LESS than 3 over the half term. This can be recorded (if appropriate) in our home books. We will ask for homework books on the last Monday of each half term in order for us to share and celebrate the learning.
