It is important for parents/carers to encourage children to do their best on their homework, including listening to them read for about 15 minutes every night.  Homework helps the students to consolidate their learning and become more confident in their reading, writing, and maths.


Homework is handed out on Fridays.


  • Spellings - practise every day (Test on Friday)
