Homework will be set on a Friday and is due back on the following Wednesday. This will be set on Mathletics. Our focus is on having instant recall of addition and subtraction facts within 10 and then progressing to instant recall within 20. In addition to the Mathletics task we ask you regularly practise addition and subtraction facts -The White Rose 1 minute maths App will help with this.


Phonics/ Spellings:

Spelling homework will be handed out on a Tuesday and is due in on a fortnightly basis but it is always on a Monday.

The children are expected to work between 5- 10 minutes every day on their Phonics/ spellings throughout the fortnight.
