Directed Home Learning

Each week you need to complete and hand in one piece of work from the English and maths grid – but if you want to do more than one each week you can!  If you are choosing from a skill column that you are less confident with, choose from the 'walk' row; if you are fairly confident about the skill choose from the 'jog' row and if you want to challenge yourself choose options from the 'run' row.


  • A weekly maths challenge or;
  • A weekly English challenge

To be completed as per instructions, in the correct weekly order. 

As well as:

  • A compulsory topic challenge (see home learning palette)

These can be completed in any order. 


Additional reading related activities can also be selected from the list at the back of the Home Learning book

All directed home learning will be set and sent home every Friday.  This must be returned to school by Wednesday morning.

All children will attend ‘Catch-up Club’ over lunchtime should homework not be returned.
