Homework  

We want our pupils to look forward to each school day. Spending an inordinate amount of time the previous evening doing homework is liable to dampen enthusiasm. Equally there is a need for children to develop the habit of working away from school and to understand that learning does not only happen within school.

From their first term the children are encouraged to take work home. This will often be completing unfinished work, spelling, further practice in a particular skill etc. As the children progress through the school the amount of homework will increase and also the nature of the tasks. The children will have a homework book with details of set homework and you are asked to sign that it has been attempted.

Homework may be downloaded from the Fronter Website. Follow the Link from the Home Page

If you have any concerns about the amount or type of homework please contact the class teacher as it is important that parents and teachers work together.

Homework patterns - You can expect homework to be set on a regular basis as detailed below. We also hope that you will enjoy sharing reading with your children every day of the week.
