Home Learning

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

 Homework will be set every week (on a Friday) via Class dojo with a focus on either English or Maths. You can return the homework by the following Friday via Class dojo so we can see it. If you require paper copies of the homework, please just let us know.
