Home Learning at Moulsecoomb
Home learning activities are set by class teachers on a weekly or fortnightly basis and vary by year group. They will all be accessible on Google Classroom, our chosen web-based platform for all year groups.
Each year group will have weekly spellings and grammar lessons, daily reading activities, and a maths, literacy or topic-based activity. In addition, students are encouraged to continue revision using Numbots (KS1) or Times Table Rock Stars (TTRS) (KS2), and LEXIA Core 5 (KS2).
Information about home learning arrangements for each year group will be shared by class teachers and email contacts will also be provided to answer any questions you may have.
Google Classroom is our online learning platform. It is accessed in a web browser (Google Chrome recommended) or via the Google Classroom app (recommended for any pupils using smartphones or tablets).
Every child has a @moulsecoomb.uk login and password that they are given by their teacher. The children will be taught how to use Google Classroom and Google Meet and how to be safe online during the Autumn term.
NumBots is an online game and playing little and often will significantly improve your child’s recall and understanding of number bonds and addition and subtraction facts. These are critical foundations in maths so we are excited by the impact NumBots will have.
Times Tables Rockstars is designed to help children learn their times tables. It is accessed via the website or the TTRockstars app.
Every child has a personal username and password that they are given by their teacher.
It is recommended that TTRockstars is used little and often to improve times tables fluency. Children are expected to know all of their times table facts up to 12 x 12 by the end of Year 4. We have made TTRockstars available to families who want to do additional maths practise at home. It is not usually set as a home learning activity.
