Homework Guidance

Class 1
 
In EYFS, the children have 'To and Fro'  books. These books foster independent learning habits. The children may be given tasks to complete or alternatively they are free to use the book to communicate what they did at the weekend or show off newly learned skills, for example, writing sentences or number work.
 
Class 2

In years 1 and 2, pupils are given maths and English work to complete. All homework is designed to consolidate what they have been learning in class. There is no expectation that all homework is completed. This is down to parental discretion. 
Spellings will be set on a Tuesday by Mrs Croft and will be tested the following Tuesday. The spelling words are those that are statutory according to the National Curriculum for Years 1 & 2.

Class 3
One piece of homework will be given for English and Maths each week. Homework will be given out on Thursday and is due in on Tuesday the following week. If, for any reason, your child is unable to complete the set task on time please let me know.
Spelling tests will take place every Monday. Following the test, children will be given the new set of words to learn for the following week. The spelling words are those that are statutory according to the National Curriculum for Years 3 & 4.

Class 4
 Homework will be set on Tuesday each week and any support you can give with this will benefit your child.  In Class 4 we are trying to develop independence so please encourage them to have a go first as it will be primarily based around prior learning and knowledge. Spellings will be set by Mrs Groom on Mondays and will be tested the following Monday. The spelling words are those that are statutory according to the National Curriculum for Years 5 & 6.
 
Spellings
All pupils in KS1 and KS2 receive weekly spellings. Please see above for further details.
 
Reading
We cannot stress enough how important reading is! Reading daily has such a huge impact on a child's academic and personal and social development. Please take daily opportunities to share a book with your child.
