Homework is given out every Thursday and should be returned by the following Tuesday. This work is compulsory and must be completed.
Homework will usually be a piece of English and a piece of Maths linked to the learning that has taken place that week. By completing homework, children are revisiting and therefore consolidating previous learning, which is vital for progress to be made. If children have any problems, they should come and talk to me about it before the day it is due in.
Spelling words are given out on Monday and should be practiced through the week ready to be tested on Friday.
In addition to Maths and English homework, we also strongly encourage children to read at home at least 3 times a week. Each time they have read, please sign their reading diary as children will then be able to work towards various prizes.
