Homework policy

We encourage children to play outside in all weathers – this is the best type of homework!

The most important thing that you can do at home to support your child is to read to them. Sharing a good book together, even just for 5 minutes, has a proven impact on your child’s learning and creates special memories for everyone in the family. We also encourage you to listen to your child read. Every child will have either sight words, letters and sounds and spellings to practise too.

From Y1 onwards, most children will have weekly maths homework, which is set on a Friday. Please could this be handed in by the following Wednesday. Sometimes, we will set other homework tasks related to our topic work. Children should be able to complete most homework on their own and it should always relate to work done in class, so that it is relevant and helpful.
