Keep learning (at home)
Hello children! Here you will find all the information you need about Home Learning what is expected of you. Remember if you find something you don't understand, or you need a little bit of extra help, you can always speak to someone at school.
“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
Reading everyday is the best thing you can do to help your learning. This is the most important part of your home learning. Read to an adult... ask an adult to read to you... or read by yourself. Aim for at least 10 minutes each day. Remember when you have finished your book to ask your parent or carer to send a picture via Class Dojo to your teacher - then you will get your leaf added to the class reading tree!
Spellings (Y1 - Y6)
Every two weeks you will be quizzed on a set of spellings. Half of these spellings are linked to a spelling rule you will have looked at in class and the second half will be a mixture of words.
Here are the spelling lists for the different year groups. Don't forget to practise using the strategies you use in the classroom!
Maths Basic Skills (Y1 and Y2)
Alongside the spelling quizzes, children in Year 1 and Year 2 also have a fortnightly quiz based on the maths basic skills we are covering in skills.
Please find the overviews below. Don't forget to practise the maths skills - such as careful counting and your timetables - ready for the Friday quiz!
Children in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 are set five tasks (or nuggets) to complete a week. These will be a combination of reading, maths, science and grammar.
The nuggets are set on a Friday to be completed by the following Friday.
Remember - your teacher will post the nuggets on Class Dojo on a Friday as a reminder, and the set nuggets should be the first five tasks that appear when you log in to Century.
We love it when children complete extra nuggets to help their learning. Why not set yourself an extra target of three nuggets per week?
IEP Learning Targets
If you have an Individual Education Plan (IEP), you may have slightly different home learning. Remember, you can find this home learning on your plan which is shared with your parents/carers every half-term.
If you want to get ahead with your learning, recap what you have already learnt or even want to test yourself on a topic from earlier in the year, you can find all of your year groups unit organisers by clicking here.
