Home Learning



Any work set for home is not intended to be a chore for parents/carers or children.  Instead, the purpose is to help reinforce what your child has learnt in school and give you an opportunity to experience and enjoy their progress.    With the exception of reading, our home learning is all completed on learning apps or online, this means children enjoy completing tasks and are continually improving their Maths, English and Reading skills without even realising it!



To help aid your child's learning at home, we have collated a Home Learning Expectations Overview which you can view here.  This overview explains the expectations for each year group and subject area.   


Provisions  & Access

School will provide all reading books, children will also bring home a 'reading for pleasure' book from their class library.  School will provide children with any log in details and passwords they need to access the homework apps.  These can be found in your child's reading record for safekeeping. If you need any help accessing any learning platforms click on the relevant icon below and you will be directed to a handy user guide.

Reception - Year 6 Reading  

At Townfield we prioritise reading. Please read with your child as much as possible. Children should be reading daily. Please sign and date the home reading diary when your child has read. You may also like to make a comment.

See the table below that shows how frequently we send home reading books- it varies according to age and stage.

Reception, Y1 and some Y2 pupils follow the Read Write Inc scheme (RWI). Pupils in Y2-Y6 use the Oxford Reading Tree scheme.  Pupils reading RWI books must have their reading book and home reading diary in school every day.

Further Parent information and guidance regarding supporting your child’s reading can be found below:

Year 1 - 6  Spelling Shed

Children can practise spellings set by their teacher.  These spellings will also be part of the National Curriculum for each year group  (see more details in our English>Spellings page).   We also recommend testing spellings on paper as this helps chlidren not only with their spelling, but also handwriting skills. Children are to play Spelling Shed for 5 minutes per night. 

Children in Year 1 will take part in a phonics screening test consisting of real words and made up words (which are represented by pictures of aliens to help children identify them more easily.   You can find lots of practise papers on our English phonics page

Year 1 - 6  A fun way for children to learn their timestables   

KS1 - Numbots
NumBots is all about every child achieving the “triple win” of understanding, recall and fluency in mental addition and subtraction, so that they move from counting to calculating. Children will choose their own Robot and play in 'story' or 'challenge mode' to earn coins. Playing Numbots will develop an instant recall of number facts to build a genuine and secure mathematical understanding to move forward and solve complex problems. Children in KS1 are to play Numbots for 5 minutes per night.
KS2 - TImes Tables Rockstars
Multiplication and division facts are at the heart of our maths curriculum. It is crucial that children develop automaticity and fluency when learning their times tables, as this allows them to be committed to long term memory. Times Table Rockstars is a fun and engaging way for children to practise this core declarative knowledge and by doing so, they will earn points for their class in weekly 'Rock Battles'. The childrens success is celebrated on our display board in the hall, in the weekly newsletter and through weekly prizes. Children in KS2 are to play TT Rockstars for 5 minutes per night.

Children in year 4 will take part in a screening of their multiplication skills in a Mutiplication Tables Check - you may wish to encourage them to practise here
