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 Miss Barber or Mrs Boughey.

Learning at Home
Homework books will include a list of activities that will help towards our vehicle topic work. You can do these tasks in any order and in any way you would like. We always ensure that the tasks set are open ended and allow parents to adapt the task if needed and be a creative as they would like to be. We hope that you support us in completing these tasks so we can ensure all children are given opportunities to develop and progress in our learning journey.
Each child has an allocated reading day where their reading books will be changed weekly, please ensure that reading packs are in school everyday. We enjoy reading with the children in class and hope you share the same excitement when doing this regularly at home. Children who practise reading and blending sounds at home will grow in confidence quickly, therefore supporting their progress in all areas of learning.
Please sign and comment in the reading diaries provided, feedback will be given from staff with an indication of books being changed and progress made.
