Homework supports, consolidates and extends the learning that is covered in the classroom whilst encouraging the children to develop the responsibility and confidence needed to learn independently.


We would like each week for children to:

  • Read daily if possible with a grownup.  
  • Practice their spelling list each week ready for a weekly test.
  • Practice and learn off by heart their times tables.


If you have any issues regarding homework, please do not hesitate to contact either of us via email on:



Please encourage your child to read daily. As children get older it is still important for parents/carers to read with their children, discuss new vocabulary and ask questions to check understanding of their book as well as to support accurate reading.

Children’s reading records must be signed by a parent/carer after hearing them read.

Reading records should be brought to school daily because the children use them in our Drop Everything and Read sessions.  



Weekly spelling lists will be given out via a sheet at the beginning of each half term. Please practise these throughout the week leading up to the spelling test each Thursday. Spelling tests will be completed on paper and returned to parents inside their Reading Record books so that you can keep an eye on how they are progressing. 




Times tables are an essential part of your child's maths lessons.  Each child needs to learn these up to 12 x 12. Please encourage your child to practice these frequently throughout the week so they know them off by heart.

Playing Times Table Rockstars at least 3 minutes a day will help.
