Does your child have a particular need that requires different input to mainstream learning?  Click this link to visit our page about how we help our pupils who need extra support (including additional learning support links).  The equality statement on our policy page includes information about how we make our curriculum accessible to all.

Homework and Home Learning Links

Reading - pupils are expected to read to an adult at least 4 times per week with a comment/ signature in their reading record - this leads to their character progressing along the class reading race (on a display in the classroom).  Pupils have access to the following books:

  • a library book
  • an oxford reading tree book
  • a colour coded/ banded book
  • digital books on BugClub

The reading record also contains the list of words children are currently learning to spell and read.


KS1 - pupils receive a piece of English and Maths homework every Friday linked to the work being taught that week in class.  This must be completed and returned by the following Thursday.


Reception - pupils have a pink book with 'house words' that children are currently reading, which should be practiced at home and tasks are set on 'Busy Things' each week.


We recommend looking through Busy Things regularly for additional tasks and interactive challenges but this is not compulsory.


The following links all contain useful tools and resources to support your child's learning at home generally.  If your child is having specific difficulties or a they have a special education need, our inclusion and SEN page (above) has more resources tailored to those needs.  If you try to use a link and find that it is broken or out of date please let us know so that we can make the relevant changes.  Thank you.
