We recommend that children are given opportunities to use these at home regularly for 10 – 20 minutes each time. Class teacher will often set specific tasks for children to complete using these based on work they have been doing in class. They may also set written work to complete or maths facts to learn (e.g. times tables). Specific details can be found in your child’s homework diary.
