Since October 2014, Learning Logs have been used as an approach to homework across all year groups. In addition, children are expected to read for a minimum of 15 minutes each day as well as learning weekly spellings and practicing number bonds and time tables. Children in years 5 and 6 will also receive weekly homework to reinforce key learning in English and/or mathematics.
Children can access the ‘Times Tables Rockstars’ and ‘Mathletics’ websites online or via the Apps using tablet or smartphone devices:
Activities on these websites will support learning in maths:
- On Times Tables Rock Stars, children can work alone or compete in a range of activities to build their speed in recalling times tables facts.
- On Mathletics, children can complete tasks set by their class teacher as part of their weekly homework.
