Homework is obviously the best way for you to support your child at school.


Reading with your child regularly, discussing and asking comprehension questions about what they have read is essential.  Please make sure your child reads with you at least 3 times a week and that you record this in their reading diary.


Children will be set weekly spelling activities. We learn one set of spellings over two weeks with a dictation and spelling test to assess.   


Maths homework will usually be set online using My Maths, but may sometimes consist of other activities.


Homework will be given out on a Friday and needs to be returned on a Thursday. Children will be asked to write a list of their homework in their diary each week.  Children will be rewarded for completed homework by gaining team points. We celebrate exceptional homework weekly; children can share their outstanding work with the class and receive dojos
