Homework

Homework plays an important role in allowing children to become independent learners and taking responsibility for their own learning. In year six, homework allows children grow accustomed to the demands which will be placed on them as they move into secondary school.

Homework will be given out every Friday and should be handed in on the following Wednesday so that it can be marked. 

Your child has been given a homework folder; work in these folders should be neat and tidy and to the same standard as books in school.

Spellings

Children have spelling lists which they are working through as independent learners. They should practise reading and writing them throughout the week. Children experiencing difficulties with spelling will be working in programmes alongside this.

Websites

Below are links to websites which we will be using as part of the school day. They can also to used at home and will often form part of the weekly homework. If you have difficulty getting online please inform your child’s teacher and provision will be made.
