Homework and Spelling

Homework will be given out every Friday and needs to be completed and returned to school by the following Wednesday. Maths homework will be linked to developing the arithmetic skills which are being taught that week. Another short homework task will be set, and this may well be related to English, but could be a research question connected to which ever theme the children are studying at the time. If the children need Internet access for the research, and this is not available at home, arrangements will be made for them to complete the work in school. Children are also encouraged to take home their spelling books and reading books every night so that they can practise and improve.

Following on from Key Stage one children are expected to be able to read and spell these High Frequency Words.
