    Supporting your child's reading at home


    Fielding Learning Challenge Curriculum

    Home learning

    Top education researchers tell us that homework has minimal impact for primary age pupils, unless it requires children to rehearse and practise.  Our routines to reflect this. The routines for children in this year group are as follows:


    • Reading and/or talking about their reading to an adult for at least 20 minutes, 5 times a week. Complete your child’s reading record each time they read. Remember it doesn’t always have to be their school book. Reading records and reading books should be sent into school daily. Teachers will have a look at these to check regular reading is taking place at home.
    • Learning spelling patterns linked to Year Group  expectations ready for use in dictation towards the end of every week. These spellings will be on year group notice boards and should be practised at home.
    • Reciting multiplication tables to increase their fluency so that they can be applied in other areas of maths and problem solving. Log on to Timestable Rockstars!
    • Half-termly creative home learning will be set at the start of each half term and will celebrated and fed back on during our creative home learning showcases.


    You will be able to see your child’s progress through class exercise books for English and maths being sent home at least once during every term as well as at parent consultation meetings.


           We are reading the book 'Supertato' and are learning how to retell a story.



          Weekly Spellings

          Please practise spelling the irregular words:

          WB 26.09.22: of, said, says, are, were 

          WB 03.10.22: was, is, his, has, I



          Children will bring home their reading book, linked to the phonics or book band they have been assessed at. They also have the choice to select a recommended reading book or library book to share at home with you. This book should be read by an adult to the children.

          Once the children have read a book, it would be great if they could complete one of the activities of their choice outlined in their reading records. Children should complete one activity for each book.


          5  activities = Bronze Award

          10 activities = Silver Award

          15 activities = Gold Award

          All books = Platinum Award

          • Find our Recommended Reading lists here (scroll to the bottom)



          We are learning to how many tens and ones are in numbers to 20. We are also learning to compare numbers to 20.




          Numbots is a program that can be found here. It is useful for developing number bonds, addition and subtraction. Passwords will be stuck in reading planners and then families will be able to access the website at home. We recommend children to spend 3 minutes a day practising. 



          We are learning about looking after our teeth.
