Children will be set weekly homework which will build on their learning that takes place inside the classroom.
Grammar and punctuation homework books along with Mymaths will be set every Tuesday and should be completed by Friday. Comprehension homework will be sent home every other week.
Spelling and times tables practice books will be sent home with your child on a Monday and should be completed and returned to school by Friday ready for their weekly test. In addition to the above homework, children are expected to read for 20 minutes from their school reading book each day.
