It is important for children to complete ALL homework set to help support with learning.

 

Children must read regularly (every evening) so they are able to complete a range of Accelerated Reader quizzes at School to raise their reading achievements and ZPD levels. Reading will enhance fluency, expression and learning new vocabulary to support with writing whilst supporting to understand ways to retrieve and infer from texts.   

 

It is also important for children to make regular use of Mathletics and TT rockstars; it has shown to have a positive impact in preparation for SAT's for Y6 children.
