Children are expected to read every day for 20 minutes.

Weekly homework is handed out on a Friday and is due in on the following Wednesday. Homework typically consists of maths and literacy work to consolidate the week's learning.

Termly projects are set at the beginning of each term. These projects will be themed around the terms topic and can be completed in a number of different 'creative' ways and can be handed in at any time during the term.


Spellings are set every Friday and tested weekly. Spellings will always relate to a spelling rule that the children have been learning in class, the children write spelling stories in class and then a spelling author of the week is chosen; their work is then made into our weekly spelling quiz.
