Homework is set every Friday and is expected to be completed by the following Thursday. Weekly homework includes:

  • Spellings to be practised in preparation for a spelling test on Thursday. Please use the spelling sheet in the homework folder/reading records as well as Spelling Frame for additional practise.
  • Writing Bingo at the front of homework folder and also below. One activity to be completed each week using templates provided.

In Year 4, the children will have the opportunity to change their reading books on a Tuesday and a Thursday. We suggest that the children read their school books several times in order to encourage fluency and accuracy. Children are expected to read at home 3-5 days a week. This should be recorded in the children's reading diaries and must be signed by an adult. Reading certificates will be awarded accordingly: 50 reads Bronze, 100 reads Silver, 150 reads Gold and 250 reads Platinum.
