Home Learning

Homework at Kingsthorpe Village Primary will consist of essential weekly tasks such as reading and spelling as well as specific tasks from the Homework Menu that will be completed in the children’s learning logs.

The Homework Menu for your child can be found on their class page of the website.

We encourage all children to learn at home when they can and in an appropriate way for their age and ability. We have provided the children with login details for the following educational websites to enhance their learning further.

Reading Eggs

Reading Eggs is split into Reading Eggs for KS1 and Reading Eggspress for KS2. Within these areas there are lots of opportunities for children to practise reading skills through games, books and lessons as well as being able to create their own Avatar in their virtual world. When your child completes a book and a comprehension quiz or a reading/spelling lesson, they will win Eggs allowing them to spend these on improving their Avatar or playing other games. 

Within school your child has completed a placement test which has been designed to find the correct level for your child to start at, ensuring your child can access the reading, comprehension questions and games. Therefore when your child logs in at home they are ready to explore the different games, books and lessons. Your child’s log in details will be stuck in to your child’s Reading Record book for you to use at home. 

Abacus Maths

Abacus is a maths toolkit that has been written for the new primary maths curriculum. It’s been carefully crafted on a robust approach to creating inspired and confident young mathematicians.

To help children make sense of and practice their maths, Abacus provides a combination of maths games, interactive activities, pupil videos and pupil worksheets, focused around an interactive pupil world where your child can earn rewards and personalise their learning.
