Homework Information

  • Homework is given every Friday. Please note that homework is not optional.  All homework must be completed with care taken on presentation and handed in on time.  However, if your child is unable to carry out a piece of homework due to illness or any other extenuating circumstance, please let us know.
  • One piece of homework will be set around the core subjects/topic each Friday to be completed in the Homework Books. This must be handed in the following Wednesday.
  • Spellings and tables will also be sent home on a Friday in the spellings/tables book. These should be practised and learnt, ready to be tested towards the end of the following week.
  • Reading is an integral part of our homework policy, and children should read for approx. 15mins every evening with supervision.  Reading must be recorded in the reading record book for us to keep track of the books the children read at home, at school (during guided reading sessions with the teacher) and their progress through the year. Reading books and reading record books should be in book bags every day.
