Home Learning

Pupils will receive their home learning on a Friday and return it on a Wednesday. 



All pupils have received their reading books and yellow reading record. Your child will have their current reading book changed on Mondays. Pupils should read 5 times (for a minimum of 10 minutes) each week and at least two of these reads should be with an adult.

Ensure books and reading records come in with the children every day, as different teachers and TAs will be listening to your child read throughout the week.


Please use the 'comments' section within the reading records to evidence when reading has been completed as this helps us keep an eye on your child’s progress and helps us to know when their reading book is ready to be changed.

Term 3


This term we will be using the text 'The Magic Paintbrush' By Julia Donaldson. This story focuses on a magical paintbrush that, when used, makes paintings come alive! We are using this text to inspire writing our own stories with alternative adventures as well as a recount diary entry.

In RE this term we will be focusing on Christmas and Revelation. We will also be learning about different materials and their uses in Science and look forward to our experiment using different materials!

Term 2


This term we are using the text 'Emily Brown and the Thing' by Cressida Cowell. This story involves a series of adventures for Emily Brown and The Things, seeking ways to help the Thing get to sleep. We will be using this story in our writing lessons to inspire a re-tell with a different setting. We will also be using the text to write instructions on getting ready for bed.









Term 1

This term for English we are reading the book The True Story of the Three Little Pigs.  We will be using the text to support us in our writing, including exploring the characters, set and plot leading to re-telling the story. We will also use the text to create a report on different types of houses.
