The children are expected to read for at least 20 minutes every night, at least once during the weekend (Friday to Sunday) and regularly during holiday periods. If a child finishes the book then they should continue to read (any book or material). Children are given a reading/homework diary and parents are asked to sign it every night to confirm that their child has read. If a child does not read then they will have to read during lunchtime break.
The children are given English and Maths homework every week. This will be set on a Friday and is due back by Wednesday of the following week. There may also be some additional tasks. Spellings are given out on a Friday when appropriate and the children are tested on the following week - it is the children's responsibility to learn their spellings. It is essential that the children realise the importance of doing their homework. It is good training for Year 7 in Secondary School!
As secondary school is fast approaching, we encourage the pupils to be more self-reliant and self-sufficient. They need to take more responsibility for their own behaviour, learning and progress.
