Learning at Home
At Croxby Academy, we aim to provide the children with the skills to become self-regulated and resourceful learners. To encourage this further, we have some suggestions to how you can help us at home.
Weekly Homework Expectations
EYFS and KS1 children will be provided with reading books, which link to your child’s phonic stage of learning. These should be read at least 3 times a week and will be changed on a weekly basis. In addition to this, story time at home with a favourite book, which you can talk about, would also be a benefit and something to enjoy together.
In KS2, children will be set a daily reading task on Purple Mash along with a quiz. This is a pre-reading exercise of a text which will be used in a reading lesson the following day. In addition to this, children can also enjoy reading any book for pleasure. You can find online books to read on the websites below.

Each week, children will be set a new list of spellings to learn using the online platform Spelling Shed ready for their spelling test on a Friday. Children can access this each week to practise the spellings set by using their individual logins.
Children should access Times Tables Rock Stars weekly using the passwords provided to help them learn their times tables fluently.
Optional Extra Homework
Learning Beyond the Classroom
These booklets can be found on our academy website under #teamcroxby or by following the link below. They are personalised to each year group and cover a range of subjects and topics. Children can choose any activity to complete they wish. Once completed, please share with us what they have done via our Twitter page: @CroxbyPrimary.
Children can study a range of topics to gain knowledge, which can be found on our website in the #teamcroxby section or by following the link below. They are constantly being added to due to the popular demand; children love studying for these and gaining new knowledge. Quizzes can be taken weekly via the Kahoot website and details of how to do this were emailed on the 13th September.
If you visit the #teamcroxby section of our academy website, you will find the curriculum plans for each year group, for the full academic year, along with knowledge organisers for each topic. These outline the topics and knowledge your children will be learning each term so you can discuss your child’s learning with them.
