Homework & Home Learning : Autumn Term September 2020

Welcome back to the new Autumn term. We are keen to give as much support to our children as we can to catch up the teaching and learning provision they have lost since lockdown and hope to provide a diverse and engaging home work and home learning programme to assist in this.

Parents should note our main methods of communicating homework tasks, particularly in light of our restrictions around resources travelling to/from school. In the main, homework will be notified to you via the 'Marvellous Me' parental engagement platform, so if you are yet to sign up to the app, we suggest you do so without further delay. Contact the office if you need any further assistance with this. Our most popular homework platforms are:

  • My Maths
  • TT Rock Stars
  • Oxford Owl
  • Fiction Express (NEW)

NEW TERM FOCUS : READING AT HOME

We are launching a whole new scheme of work for raising standards in reading and children have had year group assemblies this week to introduce them to the topics and websites we will be encouraging them to access. To this end, we have compiled a detailed READING AT HOME  (click the link) document that sets out the plan of study and how children can access their own website account for our support programmes 'Fiction Express' and 'Oxford Owl'.

Children have been given their new log-in codes for MyMaths and Fiction Express, which we are re-launching as a superb literary resource. Please take a moment to read the 'Reading at Home' guide for our full plans and how to best support your child with their home learning tasks this term.
