Homework at Ryecroft

We send homework home to reinforce homework at school. Homework supports the teaching of basic skills in English and Maths. Children are encouraged to read frequently and widely to improve their fluency, vocabulary and understanding. Our Accelerated Reader programme allows children to take quizzes to test what they have remembered and learned.


Children will bring phonics, letter formation and counting to 10 work home. They will also be asked to practise writing their names.

Years 1 - 6

We are concentrating on learning the basics for homework.

Times tables, reading, spelling and grammar and punctuation work. Each week children will have a reading book, weekly spellings, grammar work and to learn their times tables.

A new online times table game called Times Table Rockstars has been launched in school, to engage the children and make them want to learn. The game can be downloaded to any device.Have a look at the programme https://www.ttrockstars.com/
