At Ellingham, homework is used from Year One upwards to strengthen the learning links between home and school. Homework will be set on Google Classroom with a focus on the acquisition of reading and number skills.

Children from Years Three to Six complete ten minute weekly Maths and English workouts to consolidate knowledge and skills covered in the classroom.

Hearing your children read at home helps your children to develop their fluency and confidence and it ensures parents and carers are part of the reading learning journey.

Weekly spellings support your children with their reading and writing and help to develop vocabulary. Please support your children with learning these key spelling patterns every week.

Rapid recall of number facts supports your children with their numeracy. Such key skills as number bonds, mental addition and subtraction and multiplication facts will help your children with using and applying their mathematical knowledge.
