Home Learning

Home Learning at Angel Road

We value your support in working with your children with a few activities at home. We would like your help in practising the important skills of reading, spelling and maths. These activities need regular practise and some extra work at home makes a big difference in school.

We hope that the home learning activities help parents keep informed about the kind of learning that is going on in school. Also it helps the children understand that learning does not just happen at school, helping them with routines that they will need as they go through their education.

Reading

Research shows that the most important homework activity for any child is to read with an adult. This includes the adult reading to the child. Remember to enjoy what you are reading. We ask you to read with your child at least three times a week and sign their reading record.

Spelling

The children will be given words to practice and learn at home. These will be based on the sounds and patterns we are learning in school. The children should practice writing these words out, spelling them out to you and thinking about other similar words.

Maths ‘Learn Its’

Each week your child will be given some number facts to learn at home. These are reinforced at school and help the children with the quick recall of important number facts.
