We would like to encourage all parents to become involved with the education of their children, as the benefit for all concerned is great. The homework policy of the school is that children share their reading with parents each evening. This need not be a long session; five to ten minutes each day will help a child progress. Talking about books the story or information.
We also encourage children in KS2 to access TTRockstars at home to supplement their mathematics teaching.
In Years 1–6, children are given spellings to learn each week in preparation for a weekly spelling test. In addition, pupils are given certain tasks to complete at home e.g. learning poetry/songs, obtaining information etc.
If the child is having real difficulty, or becomes distressed, we ask parents to let us know, rather than persisting, as we need to know when the child has not understood the work set.
