Children take home a school reading book, which they can change on a Monday and Thursday. Each week, children should aim to read their home reading book every week night. Children can also choose a class reading book from the class shelf and have opportunities to read in school every day. Children also have been given Times Tables Rock Star logins. Practising their times tables is part of their weekly homework expectation.
Spellings and homework will all be available online on DB Primary. Children have their own log ins and should check every weekday. DB Primary can be accessed on a laptop, tablet or mobile phone.
A new spelling rule is introduced on a Monday and various spelling activities in school are then completed in the week, ready for an application activity on Friday. English homework is also set on a Monday and Maths on a Tuesday.
