Preston Primary (VC) School

Love, Learn, Aspire


As from 16th November 2020, all homework and spellings will be set on Google Classroom. Thankyou for your continued support.


Homework due in Monday 16th November


This week's homework is Mathletics.  In line with our current Maths topic, we would like your child to look at the Problem Solving unit if they are in Year 1 or the Add and Subtract unit if they are in Year 2 where they can consolidate their class learning.


We have been looking at Walter Tull in class this week, so if they would like to continue to research him that would be great or they could research the footballer Alex Scott.  They can write us a sentence to tell us what they have found out.

Homework over Half Term

We would like you to practise your reading 5-10 minutes a day. Remember, there are lots of different activities you can do with one book in order to gain the most out of it.


We will be posting some extra phonic materials to support the learning we have been doing in class, so please keep a look out on the Phonics page!


Finally, we have added the Common Exception words under Phonics too. These are words that are enormously useful to learn so why not try practising five you find difficult? Perhaps you could try writing them into sentences (this will also help your handwriting too).

Homework - due in Monday 2nd November via Class One email

In Maths we have been thinking about Fact Families. Have a try at making some number sentences using the even numbers given. As always, you don't have to print anything off, only if you want to! 

Homework - due in Monday 19th October

This week we would like you to continue with your Mathletics unit but if you feel like a challenge, why not have a try at the following Number Bond problem? (You can draw out your triangles if you'd rather not print it). Maybe you can send photos to the class email if you manage to complete successfully!

You can use these templates to help you

Homework - due in 12th October 2020


We are so impressed with how well you are all doing with your Mathletics, well done!  It has also been so lovely to see all the adjectives you thought of to describe the bears from the Goldilocks story.


This week's homework we would like you to try the Addition and Subtraction unit on Mathletics.  This will link with your learning in class.


For English homework this week can you find one interesting fact out about one of the animals we have been drawing in Art. (Eagle, Elephant or Chameleon) and write us a sentence?  Remember your capital letters, full-stops and finger spaces.

Homework - due in Monday 5th October 2020

We hope that you have enjoyed using Mathletics - we are impressed with how many of you are attempting your activities, well done!


For this week's homework we would like you to continue with your Place Value unit but if you have completed it or feel you need a break, then we would like you to try this:


Draw/paint/collage a picture of one of the bears from the Goldilocks story and remembering your labelling skills we have learnt in class, label your bear using adjectives (describing words).

To be completed by Monday 28th September 2020

Thankyou for all your book reviews; we have really enjoyed reading them!


This week's homework is Mathletics. Hopefully your child has shared their login with you and will hopefully remember how to do this and what to do once logged on. In line with our current Maths topic, we would like your child to look at the Place Value unit where they can consolidate their class learning.


If you are experiencing any difficulties with logging on, please contact us via the class email.



Due in Monday 21st September 2020 via email:

We have been reading the story 'Cave Baby' by Julia Donaldson. For this week's homework, we would like you to write a book review for Cave Baby or another one of Julia Donaldson's books. You can look at one of the following templates to give you some ideas (you don't have to print anything off).
