We look forward to welcoming you back into school as soon as we can, and sharing your fantastic CC homework in our next year group assembly

Core Curriculum Homework


Reading: 4 times a week, preferably reading aloud or discussing a book for around 10 minutes

Spellings: Spelling Frame practise each week earning 1000 points

Maths: Online Maths practise each week (including TTRS & MyMaths)


Wider Curriculum Homework

CC: This is topic based homework, once every half term with options in all subjects across the curriculum


In addition to the above recommendations, there might be times when extra homework opportunities are provided, and subject-based house competitions throughout the school year will provide opportunities for children across all year groups to complete further homework across the curriculum.


It is our intention, and good practice, not to send work home that the child cannot already do i.e. parents are not expected to teach new skills. There should be a clear explanation / reminder from the teacher of what is expected.


The tasks set will not always need to be handed back; there are other ways in which teachers will respond or give feedback, for example, sharing results in class / year group discussions, putting work onto a display or transferring work into class books.


For families that wish for additional learning activities at home, we signpost parents to the homework section of our school website, which contains a range of other home learning opportunities.


It is our policy not to give homework over school holidays.


If parents take holiday during term-time, something we actively discourage, parents may not request work from the teacher.
