Below is the homework grid for our topic 'Olympics'. Our focus for this half term is transition and moving up, however with it being the Olympics this Summer we wanted to celebrate it. These homework activities are all based on the new areas of learning and are differentiated 'Must, Should and Could'.

Helping @ Home


Reading: It is so important the children continue to read at home as much as possible, either by themselves or to an adult. Books can be brought home from school, borrowed from the library or be your own but please encourage your child to try a variety of genres and authors. All children have a Reading Diary. The children or yourselves need to complete the diary when they read.



There will be one piece of spelling homework a week and this will be sent out on a Monday. The children will be tested on those spellings the following Monday. Please can you encourage your children to learn their spelling words as it will help them when completing their independent writing and help to improve the quality of their work.



All children have a login for Times Table Rockstars (TTRS). Accessing this at home is very important as we don’t often have the time in school to spend practicing our times table skills, but we do need to apply them daily. If anyone has any problems accessing TTRS, please let me know and I can sort this out straight away.


Children also have logins/access to the following learning platforms (see links below). All logins have been sent home with your child. Encourage your child to be as proactive as possible at home. Please click on the links below to take you directly to the websites:
