There will be no Maths in Motion clubs next week (Monday and Thursday) and no sewing club or girls' football club on Tuesday due to parents' evenings and other school events. Thank you for your understanding. Thank you to everyone who attended our Open Morning on Wednesday. Many visitors shared some wonderful comments about our school: "Brilliant morning. I got a good feeling about the school. Your children are amazing! A wonderful school - such polite and confident children. A very positive tour of the school - great to see such positive and engaged children." Our 'All the World's a Stage' Arts Week starts on Monday 16th October. Please see the letters section under news and events for more information.

Homework

Homework

 

Homework is considered to be a valuable element of the teaching and learning process. Children are set homework on a regular basis which may consist of one or more of the following:

 

  • tasks reinforcing class learning
  • spellings
  • reading
  • elementary research
  • a specific challenge

 

Depending on the aim of the activity, homework may be offered on a set daily basis, eg half an hour per day, or on a weekly basis. The following guidelines are suggested: Year 3: from 2 hours per week Year 4: from 2 hours per week Year 5: from 2.5 hours per week Year 6: from 3 hours per week Homework activities for the weekend are available on the school’s website. In addition to the work set, children will be expected to complete any outstanding class work. Children must keep a diary of all homework set in their Home-School Diary. Parents are encouraged to check and sign this book on a regular basis. 

 

If at any time your child does have difficulty completing work at home, then do not hesitate to contact the class teacher.

For the carrying of work between home and school, please use a sturdy folder. Most children prefer the ‘expanding file’ style with compartments for individual subjects.
