Learning at Home

At Dore Primary School we enjoy celebrating learning that children complete at home, please see below for what is expected in each year group:

  • Spellings/Phonics: In foundation stage and Y1 pupils will receive weekly phonics sounds and words to practise at home. In Y2 - Y6 pupils will receive weekly spellings to practise at home (these will also be put on the online learning journeys), these will be reviewed in school on a regular day.


  • Reading: Children in FS - Y3 each have a reading record book to encourage daily shared reading. Please add comments about any reading time you share at home (this includes all books you share together, not just ones from school). In Y4/5 and Y6 children each have a 'Reading at Home' book and a 'Writing at Home' book. These should provide stimuli to inspire thinking about the texts they are reading and their own work as authors.


  • Inspired Learning at Home: We strongly encourage our children to follow their own interests, learning at home within the
    topics they are studying in school. The children follow the
    TASC approach choosing how to research and present their findings. This may be a picture, story, poem, powerpoint, model, poster, film. This work is celebrated in school and takes pride of place in the Learning at Home area in your child's class.


  • Purple Mash: Purple mash is our online learning platform from FS-Y6 for all subjects, your child should have a user name and a password. Check on the 'to-do' section of the Purple Mash site for personalised tasks from your class teacher. https://www.purplemash.com/sch/doreprimary

  • Timestable Rock Stars: All pupils from Y2-Y6 have a username and password for TTRS. Accessing this on a weekly basis has been found to significantly enhance children's timestable knowledge. Children are rewarded each week for significant improvements to their baseline score. https://ttrockstars.com/login2
