Home Learning




All children throughout the school are expected to read at home at least 3 times per week for 15-20 minutes – this should be recorded in home-school books.  For children in Reception to year 4, a family member comment is expected. E.g. ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory p.71-78. Good understanding of the chapter and read fluently.


For children in years 5 and 6, children are expected to still be reading at least 3 times per week for 15-20 minutes.  However, they are welcome to record their reading themselves in their home-school book.


For children in EYFS and KS1 (Reception to year 2) this will be a combination of phonics books that they bring home each week or accessing books they have been allocated on Little Wandle online. Children in these year groups will also be bringing home a reading for pleasure book each week.


Phonics and Spelling

Each term the children will be tested on their spellings of the statutory words. A copy of these words will be sent home so that these can be practised at home. Teachers will set phonics work to support the children practising their sounds as and when necessary during the child's time in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 on Active Learn. Once the children have moved off the phonics programme they will have a login to Spelling Shed where they will be able to access games that practise set words to consolidate their in school learning.


A weekly spelling activity will be set on Spelling Shed each Friday for children from year 1 to year 6 which will be a consolidation of the spelling focus your child has been practising that week. The majority of tasks should be able to be completed independently by your child.




In Key Stage 1, children are expected to access Numbots each week where they have a selection of activities to take part in linked to their in-class learning. 


In Key Stage 2, children use times table rock stars (TTRS) which is an online platform to ensure they have a rapid recall of all multiplication and division facts up to 12x12.  Year 3 and 4 children will have a focus multiplication set that they will be working on, whilst year 5 and 6 children will be expected to practise a range of times tables. The children are expected to access TTRS weekly.


In Key Stage Two, at the end of each unit of work, a maths activity will be set on Active Learn (online platform) on a Friday. This may not be a weekly activity but your child’s class teacher will communicate with you via seesaw when one has been set.



For children in EYFS, a Friday seesaw message will include suggestions of activities your child can do at home which supports the wider curriculum focus and topic.



For some children that find some concepts of learning difficult, teachers will work with parents and children to give them boosts.  This could well be in the form of homework. 

For children, who want to do extra work to consolidate learning or practice what they have learnt, they are able to access online resources on the school website.


Year 6

To prepare children for secondary school, year 6 will receive Maths and SPAG (spelling, punctuation and grammar) homework in order to consolidate end of year expectations from the spring term onwards.




At Roselands, we have developed an approach to provide learning opportunities for any missed in-school learning time, due to the current COVID pandemic and the precautions that we are being advised to take, in order to minimise the risk of spreading the virus.


If your child has developed symptoms of COVID it is important that you do not bring them to school and that you arrange for your child to be tested ASAP.  Whilst you are awaiting the test result, if your child is well enough, they should complete their regular online learning/homework using the online platforms such as timestable rockstars, Myon and MyMaths. They should also practice their spellings.


If you receive a positive result from your PCR test and you are told to self isolate or you receive a positive test result, please inform the school ASAP. 


A member of staff from your child's class will contact you to ensure that you have everything that you need. If your child is well enough to complete some school work, your child's class teacher will set a range of learning that links to the in-class learning.  Links to suitable learning material will be made available to you through Seesaw for EYFS & year 1 or through Google classroom if your child is in Year 2-6. Please communicate with your child's class teacher through Seesaw.  Children will have access to an English, reading and maths lesson each day, following a sequence of lessons.  Some foundation subjects will also be recommended to you.  Please allow time after your phonecall for your child's class teacher to source and send you suitable learning - they will be teaching during the school day and may therefore be unable to allocate learning to you until after school on the day of your phonecall.


In the event of a school bubble, regional or national lockdown all teachers will deliver new learning through an online platform (Google classroom for year 2 - 6 and the Seesaw & Zoom for EYFS and Year 1 pupils)

Roselands Remote Learning Statement


As of September 2021 Seesaw replaces the ILD in the EYFS & Year 1 and will be used alongside Zoom for these year groups only in the event of a class, phase, school or national lockdown.  In the case of individual periods of pupil isolation the approach as set out above will be used for teachers to assign specific learning links that mirror the in-school provision.
