Helping your child at home

Homework will be sent every week to be completed in blue pen or pencil by the following week. Children will receive spellings, mental maths, grammar and another piece of work each week. There will be a spelling test and a mental maths test every Friday. Please encourage your child to ask in school for further explanation of their homework activities if they don’t understand, before it is due to be handed in.

Your child should also read every day, in addition to homework. Please discuss what you child has read and then record the text in their Reading Record. You can also include any comments about their reading. Your child can also be encouraged to read other things, e.g. newspapers, comics, magazines, library books, etc. which can also be recorded.
