As a parent you can play a vital role in your child's education. This includes homework.
For children in Years 3 - Year 6, practising times tables is extremely important: by the end of Year 4 the children will need to know their times tables up 12x12. eg: 7 x 8 = 56 or 56 divide by 8 = 7. Rapid recall of these facts are needed. Number bonds and telling the time are other ways you can help your child/children with mathematical concepts.
Reading on a daily basis is also expected. Reading aloud with an adult is important throughout the primary years. Even if your child is a fluent reader, having a discussion about the story (for example the characters personalities and actions, the vocabulary used by the author) is a valuable way to develop reading skills.
Your child will be expected to know the spellings of their year group (Spelling lists can be found at the bottom of this section).
Homework is normally given out on the Monday and is expected back on the Friday. English and Maths homework alternate each week. We currently run a homework club on a Wednesday at lunch time. This is run by Mrs Penning and all children are welcome.
