Home Learning Expectations


In Year 1 Nightingales, the children are expected to read at least five times a week. Please remember to sign their reading planner each time they have read. They do not have to read the book that they bring home from school for each time you sign their planner. They are allowed to read books from home, books on Bug Club, etc. If the child has their planner signed, this will be recorded by the teaching staff. Every Friday, these reads will be collated and if your child has read five or more times that week, they will get a cookie on 'Cookie Friday'. They will also move up one step on the 'Reward Tower' and when they reach number ten on the reward tower, they can pick a prize. The prizes are amazing and the children have been working so hard to achieve them. If we are the class with the highest reading percentage, we are given 5 minutes extra playtime. 

Keep up the good work! smiley


Book Changing Days - Monday, Wednesday and Friday


Weekly Homework

In their homework books, the children have a homework sheet that has activities on them. Each week, the children must complete an activity to hand in to the teacher to be marked. Each activity must be completed on a new page with the long date and the activity number at the top of each page. The homework must be completed in pencil (NOT PEN!!) and must be neatly presented. If the homework is not completed to a good standard or not completed at all, then certain children may be asked to complete it or redo it during a playtime.




Half-Term Homework Project

Each half-term, the children will be given a homework project related to their novel or a topic of work. The children can complete it at any time, as long as it is finished and handed in by the deadline date.


The deadline date for this half-term's homework project is: Wednesday 3rd April, 2019
