We will hand out a piece of maths and literacy homework each week when appropriate - usually on a Wednesday - which needs to be handed in by the following Wednesday.

Occasionally, we may set a piece of homework to support other curriculum work we are doing in class.

In addition, try numerous fun educational games and learning resources at:

Reading

Each child will be set a points target which is related to the number of words in books they are expected to read each term. A quiz will be taken when a book is finished, to check comprehension.

To move up a level, every child will be expected to complete five quizzes scoring at least 80% on each quiz. A minimum of 15 minutes reading is expected most evenings during the week.
