Homework

 

Maths and English homework will be given out every 2 weeks.

The homework will support their half termly target which is in their planners.

Please bring it back to school at the end of the two weeks.

Little and often is better than doing it all in one or two nights!

Please complete the homework in pencil and not in pen.

Please ensure your child’s name is on all sheets.

There is no need to return any games sent home.

There will be suggestions for further learning that can be done via the internet.

Please support your child in any activity but do not do the homework for them. If you feel it is too difficult or too easy for them let me know.

Thank you for anticipated support.
