Turner Morehall Home learning

Home learning

All children receive home learning to complete weekly. Home learning takes the form of reading, times tables and spellings. Children are also set a termly project linked to their Core Knowledge lessons. Home learning is celebrated both in class an through our termly home learning assemblies.

Please see the overview below for each year group’s home learning expectations:

Home Learning Overview

Reading

Reading is key to a child’s success throughout the curriculum. Please take time to listen to your child read, read to your child and encourage them to find books that they love. Whilst children are learning to read, they bring home a RWI book linked to their RWI lessons each week. Please ready this several times to develop their decoding skills, fluency and expression. They will also bring home a book they have chosen and would like to share with you. Once the children are fluent readers, they will bring home one book which they have chosen.

Times Tables

When it comes to times tables, speed AND accuracy are important – the more facts your child remembers, the easier it is for them to do harder calculations. Times Table Rock Stars is a fun and challenging programme designed to help pupils master the times tables. To be a Times Table Rock Star you need to answer any multiplication fact up to 12×12 in less than 3 seconds! Regular practice is important to develop quick recall and become a Rock Hero!
