Green base children are expected to read each day for 20 minutes and this reading should be recorded in their reading record. We understand that at this stage children are usually competent readers and they prefer to read to themselves, this should be encouraged by parents who should ask their children about the book they are reading.
They will also have a weekly spelling list which should be practiced daily.
There will be a weekly homework based upon any area of learning from the previous week, this may be English, maths or topic based. The time expectation for this activity would be around 45 minutes weekly
The children will also be given a Learning Log activity to be worked on independently at home which is designed to enhance their topic learning. Suggested ideas for tasks are given by the class teacher.
