Homework and spellings

Homework is set every Friday and is to be returned on the following Monday. The homework will alternate each week between English and maths. 

It is vital that you support and enable your child to do their work thoughtfully and neatly. I encourage children to complete their homework as independently as possible. Please ensure that your child develops a routine so that they remember to bring their work to school.



As part of the weekly homework, your child will be given 6-8 spelling words. They will have a spelling test the following Friday that will be completed in the back of their homework book. I encourage children to practise using their words in sentences to gain a solid understanding of spelling and reading.


  • Can you decode and blend your words?
  • Do you know what the word means?
  • Can you say the word in a sentence?
  • Can you write the word in a sentence?
