Homework

Teachers set homework on Wednesdays to hand in on Mondays.

Key stage 1 

(This includes Reception if appropriate). Each child should read daily to, or share a book with, an adult for about ten minutes each night. The teacher will give each child an appropriate group of spellings to practise at home. If there are other pieces of work to do the classteacher will inform the person collecting the child of the details.

Key stage 2

Each child should read daily to, or share a book with, an adult for around fifteen minutes each night. We will send spellings home each week. The teacher will also set work from other areas of the curriculum. Year Six children may have extra revision tasks. These are to prepare them for SATs testing and to get them ready for secondary school.

How parents can help

You can have a positive effect on your child. Enjoy sharing your children’s learning with them. Every little helps! You can encourage them to complete their homework and develop good study habits.

We ask parents to:

  • provide a peaceful place for doing homework
  • make it clear that homework helps children to make progress
  • give praise for completion of homework
