The children will be given spellings to learn every Friday and will be tested on them the following Friday. Please support your child in learning their spellings through the week.

The children will be tested on their times tables every Friday.

It is an expectation that the children read a book of their choice at least twice a week. Reading books should be returned to school on a Thursday and new books will be re-issued on a Monday. All books must be quarantined for 3 days before being sent to a new household.

A homework grid relating to the topic being covered will be sent home at the beginning of each half term. The children are expected to research and produce answers to at least 2 of the questions. They can answer the questions with as much creativity as they wish. They will be expected to share their work with the rest of the class.
