We really appreciate your help with homework as the work set consolidates the learning that has happened during the week in school. Homework is given in a homework folder on Fridays and is due in the following Thursday to be checked. 

All children are expected to read for at least 5 minutes each day with an adult.

Recommended Reading Books

Children will receive spelling or phonics homework alternating each week. Spellings will incorporate learning for a test. Please encourage them to look at each word, cover it and practice writing it, then check it. Phonics will incorporate a particular aspect from their weekly phonic lessons.

Regular spelling practice of a few minutes each night will make a big difference to your child's ability. 

Children are set one piece of Maths homework to consolidate the work we have been doing in class that week.
