The school actively encourages children to learn further through homework. Each class teacher will establish a homework routine for their class. The tasks set are designed to support learning and to give practice in basic skills.
Each half term the children are encouraged to complete a challenge sheet. The challenges undertaken aim to encourage positive habits at home, a pleasure of reading and enjoyable social activities.
We hope that parents/carers will encourage their child to complete the task and help and support when appropriate. Class teachers are always willing to discuss ways in which parents/carers might help their children.
