Homework Ethos:


At Horizon Primary Academy we believe that homework encourages and enhances children’s learning as well as providing an opportunity for parents and children to work together to enjoy new learning experiences. 




By the end of Year 2 the children should know their 2, 5 and 10 times tables as well as the related division facts. Please support your child to learn these in a fun, practical way on a regular basis. 5 minutes a day can make a big difference to their recall.


All children from Reception to Year 6 have an online Mathletics account whereby they need to complete set tasks and practice their times tables before they can play maths related games.




We recommend that all children read independently or are read to by parents or carers on a daily basis either before or after school for 15 – 20 minutes. Books from our levelled reading scheme, Accelerated Reader scheme, Swanley Link, or books from home are all suitable.




Please practise the spellings that will be sent home  weekly from the RWI spelling programme.
