  • Reading 3 times a week

  • Practising spellings and phonic patterns

  • A maths activity

At the start of the school year, all children will be assessed in reading and given an appropriate reading book. Children can also access reading books digitally on the Collins Big Cat Website. Homework will be set covering a range of activities including written work, games and online activities.

Children will also be given topic homework to complete over the course of each half term. This will be linked to what they are learning in class and children will have a range of activities to choose from. The work children create can either be brought into school or uploaded and shared with teachers on Class Dojo.

Reading challenge

At Grange we believe that learning to read is of utmost importance. To encourage children to read regularly, we have introduced a weekly and termly school reading challenge.

 

Weekly challenge

Every child in school has been allocated a number between 1-15. Every Friday, a random number is selected and the reading records of all of the children who have been allocated that number are checked to see whether they have read 3 times. If they have read 3 times that week, the child will win a prize. 

Termly challenge

At the end of each term, the names of all children who have read 3 times a week each week are put into a prize draw. One name from KS1 and one name from KS2 will be pulled out and these children will win a Kindle!
