Welcome toHogarth Primary SchoolCONFIDENT


Homework - UPDATED 21.02.22


It has been agreed across the school that after half term, both homework and reading books will be given out on Friday and will need to be returned the following Friday. We hope this will give the children more time to complete the homework activities as it includes the weekend.


Spellings and times tables tests will be every Friday. The children who score brilliantly are rewarded weekly.

Please read on for more information.


Times Tables Rockstars

Times Tables Rockstars is an excellent way to practise for times tables. Children should be accessing this for at least an hour per week. Children are rewarded weekly for their efforts. If you need your child's log in details again please contact me.


When your child achieves 100% on their times table test, they will be able to move onto the next times table.

This is the order: 10x, 5x, 2x, 3x, BRONZE, 4x, 8x, 6x, 9s, SILVER, 7s, 11s, 12s, GOLD.



Please do encourage the children to practise their spellings frequently.

  • Spelling pyramids – these are a useful way of learning new words as they are broken down bit by bit.
  • Robot arms - The children can also use their ‘robot arms’ to help decode their new spellings.
  • Handwriting – the children are to write their spellings in neat cursive handwriting.
  • Sentences - The children are to write a sentence for 5 of their new spellings to help with the structure of a sentence (capital letters, finger spaces and full stops). A challenge could be to write an exclamation sentence or a question and use exciting adjectives or adverbs.   


You can also practise for your Spelling Bee test which takes place each Friday and is a whole school competition. This is optional if you want to improve your score.


Reading books

Every Friday, the children will be given a new reading book, which will be due back in school the following Friday.

Please read with your child, preferably at least 3 times a week, and write a comment in their reading diary. Those children who continue to do so will be rewarded at the end of the term. Daily practice with an adult can increase their enthusiasm and help them progress even further. It is also very useful to discuss the books they have read to you to help their reading comprehension. We have put some question suggestions in the front of your child’s home reading diary. At Hogarth we have a policy that states all children should have at least 3 signatures in their diaries per week.
