Still image for this video
Here is a video demonstrating how to use MyOn for both reading and homework. We are not using planners this year, so all homework will be set, and should be recorded, on MyOn. Please contact the school if your child has any issues logging in, or if you'd like any further support with using it.

Maths Homework


We will be setting maths homework each week to be completed. This will either be TTRS or Doodle Maths - please use the above timetable to know what the order will be. This will be set on MyOn so the children can check it off as completed once they've done it.

Reading - We expect the children to read at least three times a week for a minimum of 20 minutes in Year 6.  They should record this on MyOn after it has been set as a task by their class teacher. What needs to be recorded will be outlined on MyOn.

After finishing a book, the children should log onto the Accelerated Reader website to complete a comprehension quiz to show their understanding of the text. Class teachers check Accelerate Reader each week for their class.

Once you have read a book, click on Accelerated Reader – type in the book name (not all books have a quiz) – click on take quiz and work through the questions – you can take a vocabulary test afterwards if it is offered to you.



Spellings - Children will be explicitly taught spelling rules within class. Spelling lists will be sent home for parents' info and if you would like to practise or learn them at home, please do! We will not sit weekly tests however, children are expected to use Spelling Shed weekly to practise their spelling rules and common exception words but the more they practise the better their outcomes will be. They can play any of the games available.

Stage 1 and 2 = year 1 and 2

Stage 3 and 4 = year 3 and 4

Stage 5 and 6 = year 5 and 6


Times Tables - Times Table Rockstars will be set every other Tuesday; children are expected to complete the challenges that have been set. Children are encouraged to continue to use this programme or Doodle Maths to practise their timetables on a daily basis.  Links are; and



When homework is set on TTRS, sections will be greyed out so they can't access anything other than their homework. A headphone symbol will appear which tells them how many games have been completed out of the amount set.


Doodle Maths

Download the free app onto any touchscreen device (iPad, Kindle Fire, Android Tablet etc.)  You can also access through the Doodle Maths website.
or computer.

-This app is tailored to your child's ability level in Maths.  All children have completed a Doodle Maths baseline assessment in school so that they can work through the questions as often as they like (collecting stars along the way) at their own pace and a suitable level for each individual child.  This app/website  covers all areas of the Maths curriculum.

More information can be found at 

-When homework is set for the children on alternate Tuesdays, it will be displayed as a green circle with the heading; 'Extras.'


Rewards and Recognitions

To encourage children further, house tokens and headteacher awards will be given to those children for who go above expectations.
