Reading Diaries

At Woodhouse West we believe that learning at home is a key aspect of children’s development. It helps children improve and consolidate key skills, and provides a valuable opportunity for children to share with their parents/carers learning they have been doing at school  Click here for the home school agreement.

Children can choose from a homework menu and for each task completed they earn a dojo point or even a Green Card!

Each term, children will be encouraged to complete homework from a 'homework menu' from their class
teacher. This will be a range of activities relating to their current topic that parents can complete with their children. Please do share photographs of your children carrying out the tasks by e-mailing them to
