'Learning and Growing Together'

Home Page


Welcome to our homework page.

There will be daily challenges to help you continue your learning while you are at home. Every day there will be a selection of different challenges, try to complete as many as you can.

Each day, please challenge yourself to:

  • Practise your reading skills on Read Theory
  • Practise your times tables in TT Rockstars
  • Use Hit the Button to practise your mental maths skills
  • Choose a spelling challenge (from the spelling grid) to help you learn your spelling words


I will be updating this part of the website with exciting new challenges every day for you to choose from.



Easter holidays

I can't believe we have had two weeks working at home. Well done everyone! I hope you are all enjoying the activities and want to say a great big thank you to your parents and families for supporting you! THANK YOU! Well done to you if you sent me some of your work - I hope you like seeing it on our 'shout-out' board! It's not too late to send something!!


It is now the Easter holidays, so I won't be setting daily work. Please check back in on MONDAY 20th APRIL for activities connected to our new project!!

Enjoy the Easter break - Joe Wicks is still doing his exercises and there are some other things for you to do here ....

Stay safe, be good!
