All teachers will set a small and manageable amount of homework on a regular basis, which will be mainly based around literacy and numeric. Teachers write letters to the parents of their pupils, which will give details of their homework diary. All pupils will have weekly spelling list to learn plus a small amount of Maths, linked to the Numeric Hour, English and occasionally topic work. In addition to formal homework, we encourage all children to take reading books home to read for pleasure. Parents are encouraged to support their children in learning their tables and in practical mental arithmetic activities, such as shopping, giving change, telling the time and measurement. If your child is having problems with the homework set, please let your child’s teacher know.
