Homework

All children have regular homework. The amount will depend on their age, and class teachers may occasionally ask pupils to undertake topic work at home or to complete additional work. Homework will include daily reading, spellings and times tables or mental maths activities. Homework linked to the topic being studied will be set every two weeks in every class.

As the children progress through the school they will also be set Literacy or Maths homework every fortnight based on what is being learnt at the time.

All teachers are willing to discuss the homework or other activities that can be done at home to support the children.

All KS2 children have a Weekly Planner in which they record the homework set and date due in. This is good preparation for secondary school. Parents are encouraged to comment in these planners and sign them each week.

All KS1 children have reading record books which are to be completed daily when the children read at home.

There is a homework club on a Thursday after school to support pupils and parents with homework. Teachers are always happy to talk with any pupil or parent who needs extra help with set homework.

In addition to this we offer our children a chance to extend their learning through the use of different internet sites. Links to the websites are on the leaflet below, usernames and passwords can be supplied by your class teacher or the school office.
