PPA covered by Miss Goodwin
Homework is set on Fridays and may be completed/handed in any time before the following Friday. If your child doesn’t complete their homework a text will be sent home.
Weekly tasks include learning spellings, ICT maths challenges (for example TT Rockstars) and daily reading.
If your child doesn’t have their reading record signed for three days in a row, you will receive a text home informing you.
In addition, there will be something to practice from current lessons in English, Maths, Topic, Language or Science.

How it works:
Pupils are assigned a book level based on an online assessment. Pupils can read any book within this level. On completion of the book, pupils take an online quiz – our pass rate target is 85%.
Reading Engaged Time (per day)
The program calculates how long each pupil is reading each day using the number of words in the book (word count) and the time taken between each quiz. Our target is for an engage time of 25 minutes per day – some of this will be done in school, but the majority will need to be done at home please.
Staff can access a number of reports which monitors your child’s reading. I will let you know at regular intervals how your child is performing via their reading record. Please feel free to ask for this information at any time.
To increase success rates, you can ask your child to tell you about the story they are reading or discuss any new vocabulary with them.
