Children Playing

Children are expected to complete regular home learning activities. We encourage parental involvement with this as it is a lovely opportunity to share in your child’s learning.

Mercury Class
Mercury Class pupils change their books regularly. The children are encouraged to choose their own books within a colour band and progress quickly through these colours. We encourage parents and carers to read daily with their children and to write comments in their reading logs.

Mercury Class has weekly home learning activities to support Maths, English or Topic. Home learning is given on a Friday and we hope for it to be returned the following Wednesday. In Mercury Class, we love to see any additional activities you have chosen to do with your child.

Jupiter Class
Homework is issued weekly and alternates between Maths and English each week.

The children also have weekly spelling tests and have their own spelling booklets with a new list each week. The lists are based on a mixture of high frequency words and spelling patterns from the new curriculum. The lists are differentiated between year groups.

Children are expected to read at least three times a week at home. Jupiter Class love reading and we can see the importance both to widening our knowledge and vocabulary.

Mars Class
Mars Class will have a weekly spelling test, which will take place on a Monday morning. Maths & English home learning is set every week (mainly linked to the children’s learning in that particular week) and should be handed in by the Monday of the following week. Regular reading is always encouraged and children should aim for a minimum of 3 reads a week.
Mars Class also participates in music through the Suffolk Music Service who will also set a weekly piece of music homework to support their learning.
