Home Learning
Children in Key Stage 1 and 2 are expected to read at home daily and have
their Reading Record signed by an adult. Children will be sent home with a
reading book of an appropriate level and will have the opportunity to change
this regularly. All children in Key Stage 2 have home access to online reading
and related activities, which are set an appropriate level through Bug Club.

In KS1 additional tasks may be set based on learning in the classroom. In Key
Stage 2 homework is set once a week for English and maths linked to class
learning. Spelling strategies may be sent home in addition to this work. Further
pieces of science work and topic projects are also set in Year 5 and 6. All
children in Key Stage 2 have home access to Education City and Times Table
Rock Star where they can undertake further learning and activities.

Key Stage 2 children are currently being encouraged and shown how to access
and submit homework via Google Classroom.
