How to complete Homework

Homework is set on Fridays. Spelling tests will take place in school on Fridays and the new spelling rule for the following week will be taught. 

Due to current circumstances, homework books will not be collected in from home and marked by staff. Children do not need to return their homework book to school. Homework books should be treated as a journal. This is a book for children to record their homework, practice spellings, record research, answer tasks etc.

You can share your child's homework with us via school social media or email.

All work requiring marking will have answer sheets attached for parents and children to use.

'Always Homework' 

These are daily homework tasks. Children are encouraged to practise as much as possible.

All your log-in details are in your Home Learning Pack.

Hi everyone

Miss Earley(less than a year ago)

So glad you enjoyed the Victorian Slum programme Isabel. It is so interesting to see how people lived during that time isn't it?

Isabel(less than a year ago)

I watched 'the Victorian slum' and it was really good. I liked seeing how the people tried to make money so that they could pay their rent.

Hi everyone! I am so pleased with all the hard work I have been hearing about at home. You are all doing your best to help around the house and have been learning new things like baking and gardening. Absolutely fantastic life skills so well done! And then to top it off you’ve even been having a go at some home learning! You are incredible and I miss you all so much! Take care and stay safe!
