Homework

Foundation and Year 1

Whilst we have a class reading schedule for the class reading books, we encourage you to use books from home, the library, etc, to share with your child as often as you can. The broader your child’s reading the better. We ask that reading books are in school during the day so that they are available for teachers and support adults to hear your child read.

Foundation Stage Homework Schedule

Monday, Wednesday and Friday: Read class book and practise phonic sounds and support words.

Share your child’s WOW moments by using the voucher below or collect one from school:
