Compulsory home learning tasks

Key Stage 2 (year 3 – 6)

  • Reading – Children at Ashbourne Primary School should read 5 x a week at home with their parents and this should be recorded in the child’s reading record. Reading records will be checked every Monday.
  • Times tables – Since the implementation of the new National Curriculum 2014, pupils are required to know times tables facts up to 12 x 12 by heart by the end of year 4. Children should practise these at home via Times Tables Rockstars and in year 6 should continue to practise if they don’t know them. It is recommended that for Times Table Rockstars to have an impact, it should be used for at least 10 minutes per week.
  • Spellings – The government have set words that the children must learn in each year group. These will be sent home and tested weekly. 6D will have a spelling test every Monday.
  • Arithmetic – Weekly half-test due in on a Monday.
  • Handwriting –  Handwriting and letter formation will be sent to pupils who need to  practise. Year 3 have weekly handwriting homework in Autumn 1 to practise letter formation.
