General Homework Tips for parents.
Homework is an important part of your child's education. We always appreciate things you can do with your child at home to help their learning in any area, particularly with maths, reading and writing.
If you are looking for something extra to do at home, or have mislaid your current homework, have a look at some of the ideas below. Make sure to let your teacher know what you have been doing at home.
Check out the Parent Information Page for details of how we teach English and Maths at Manor, and how you can help at home.
Reading and Writing
We use a mixture of reading scheme books in Key Stage 1, including Oxford Reading Tree and Pearson Bug Club. Your child has a set of reading books available online too, which you can read on a tablet or computer.
Your child's teacher will be able to remind them of their login details for Bug Club online reading books. Our school ID is wg9t .
Reading at home and sharing books together is great fun, and it helps your spelling and vocabulary too! Didcot Library is free to join, and is only a few minutes walk from school.
There are lots of ways to practise your writing - why not try a journal, diary, or writing a letter to someone? For spelling games, see Education City or the games linked in the Literacy Zone that our digital leaders have recommended.
MathsThere are lots of brilliant ways to practise your maths online. In school, we currently use Education City and RM Easimaths, both of which can also be used at home. Click the links below. Our RM Easimaths school code is @manorschool, and your teacher can remind you of your login details.
