Homework is given out on a Friday in a blue plastic folder and should be brought back by the following Wednesday. Each week children will have spellings, maths and a 'theme' task to complete.


Children will have two reading books to take home. They will have an Accelerated Reader book, these are levelled and when they have read the book twice (once if over (30+ pages) they will take a short quiz. They will also take home a 'reading for pleasure' book. Children should be reading at least 3 times a week.
