Stuart Road Primary Academy
Home Learning Offer
The Thriving Three!1.
For us at Stuart Road, the ground rock of all learning is the ability to read and read well. Therefore the number one priority for home learning is to read daily, whether this is your Read Write Inc book, Accelerated Reader chapter book, or additional reading materials such as newspapers and magazines your children may enjoy at home.
Each and every time your child reads, they are building their comprehension skills and reading fluency.
For Key Stage 1, Reading Certificates in multiples of 50 are awarded, while in Key Stage 2, word count certificates are given with an aim to get to our first millionaire reader!
Developing maths confidence and fluency is a vital skill for all our pupils and to support this we have TT Rockstars for Key Stage 2 and Numbots for Key Stage 1. This is a fun online programme that practices your child’s maths knowledge in multiplication and division. The programme is progressive and awards pupils different Rock Star Legends as they improve. With Numbots, at every stage pupils earn parts to upgrade Rusty.
Knowledge organisers are sent home at the start of each new Cornerstones Curriculum termly topic. Please spend time reading through key facts and getting to know important words that will enhance your child’s curriculum learning and experience. Topic mini projects will also be shared via Year Group webpages and the weekly newsletter.
