Homework information

There will be a learning log challenge that will be set every Wednesday, which should be returned to school the following Wednesday.  

Children are given spellings (every Monday) to learn at home. They need to remember them for the spelling test on Friday.  

We also expect that the children will be spending time reading and learning their times tables and/or working on 'My Maths' and 'Reading Plus' at home.  I may also set tasks on Teams.

We ask that you initial all completed homework and reading for your child in their homework diaries. Thank you.
