Homework 

In Foundation, children bring home letter sounds to practise at regular intervals. Home reading books are changed twice a week. Please practise regularly – it makes such a difference! Homework, linked to other curriculum areas, will be sent home when appropriate.

In Y1, children receive weekly homework based on English, phonics, maths or enquiry-based learning (topic work). Home reading books can be changed on a daily basis if you have read at home with your child. This is strongly encouraged.


In Y2, homework sheets are given each week, alternating maths and literacy. Homework is based on what your child has been doing in school and so you can use this as a guide to understand what they have been learning about. It is intended to reinforce their learning and they should be able to do it independently.  Spellings are sent home weekly. Children are encouraged to use the Look, Cover, Write, Check method to learn them. Look at the word first to try to remember it, cover it over, then write it and check to see if you are right. Home reading books can be changed on a daily basis if you have read at home with your child. This is strongly encouraged.
