Homework

Homework is set every week. Please click on the items below to view what homework is set in each year group.

Homework supports pupils in their learning. It gives opportunities to consolidate what we have been learning in class, give opportunities to research or prepare for upcoming topics.

As a school, we believe reading is vital to every child’s success. Therefore, reading is included as part of everyone’s weekly homework.
We also set maths and English homework, which includes times tables and spelling.
