Homework is set on the Friday of each week, and is expexted to be returned by the Wednesday of the following week.
In Reception our homework is an opportunity for children to share the learning that has taken place during the week, and at the stage will include some practical and conversation activities.
The children are so enthusiastic about their learning in school, we know that they can't wait to share their experiences with you at home!
If you have queries then please see Mrs Boughey.
Phonics Homework Links
Please copy and paste the following links to complete the phonics tasks set for homework. These will be updated on a two weekly basis and will reflect the sounds learnt in class. Practising the sounds and word time lessons will help children become, confident and fluent readers. Make sure you have a go and get involved with the session.
