Home Learning

Thank you for your support with the children’s home learning so far, it really makes a difference!

There are lots of different ways you could support your child in their learning at home.  Here are just a few ways;

Reading: please continue to support your child to read daily and keep a record of their reading their reading journal. The reading journals are checked weekly. Children should complete 1 journal activity each week, this will be collected in for marking on their allocated day.

Maths: maths homework will be set on a weekly basis via Mathletics.Children can log onto Mathletics via the following link:

  Mathletics: Student Log On

Please take every opportunity to help your child learn their times tables and associated division facts (knowing that 4x5=20 so 20 ÷ 4 = 5) as this will greatly improve their maths skills.

Encourage you child to have a go at the Maths challenge that is published in the Eliot Bank weekly and here.
