Helping at Home and Homework


All children are expected to read at least 5 times a week at home and record this on GoRead/BoomReader app or website.  The teachers will check the app on a weekly basis and a record kept in class.


If you would like help on how to use the apps then PDF documents can be found at the bottom of this page.


In addition, children are expected to use DoodleMaths and DoodleTables at least 3 times a week at home.


We also provide monthly Science Challenges for all children.
