Homework is given out once a week, on a Friday and is   to be returned on Mondays. Children will alternate each week between an Maths and English activity. Each Friday your child will also be given a list of 8 words to read and spell and a spelling test will take place on the following Friday. It is vital that you support and enable your child to do their work thoughtfully and neatly. Please ensure that they develop a routine so that they remember to bring their work to school. Please provide a note if your child has not completed their homework.
