Welcome to Class One

Teaching Assistant: Mrs Doyle (Mon-Fri)
New reading books will be given every Monday and changed on a Friday. It is very important to read with your child for at least 10 minutes every night and sign their reading record to let us know they have completed their homework.
New spellings will be given on a Monday and need to be practised every night.
At The Grange we believe that it is crucial to work in partnership with parents and carers. There is an expectation that you will support us by ensuring that your child completes the tasks that we set as homework.
Obviously the level of your engagement will depend on your child’s age but we expect you take an active part in all aspects of homework and, where necessary, indicate that you have monitored the completion of it (e.g. by signing the Home/School Reading Record Book.)
The routines of reading every day, learning spellings and multiplication tables etc. can be great fun and very rewarding for all concerned. Best results are achieved when homework in not done at the last minute but has a fixed time in a child’s established home routine. Short, sharp periods of activity are preferable to prolonged periods of study where concentration can be lost.
Effective learning and consolidation of learning cannot happen in an environment with lots of distractions (e.g. television etc.) Please give some thought to where your child works at home.
Please see below the extensive list of websites that your child can visit to consolidate and extend his/her learning.
