Homework

See below for our expectations regarding homework. If you have any questions or concerns, please address these to your class teacher. On rare occasions, when essential homework has not been completed, the class teacher may arrange for pupils to complete this in their own time (at play or at lunch time).

Year 1

Every week:

  • Read at least four times to an adult at home. Ask them to record in your reading diary.
  • Practise your spellings. Spellings are given out on a Friday, ready for a test the following Friday.
  • Complete a homework activity set by your teacher (given out on a Friday, to be handed in by Wednesday of the following week).

Year 2

  • Read at least four times to an adult at home. Ask them to record in your reading diary. Reading books are changed on a Monday, while home reading diaries are checked most days.
