Unless otherwise stated, homework should be completed for the following day. Parents must always use their own judgement about the length of time spent on homework and remember that pupils should enjoy working with parents on set tasks.

Homework is issued for four main reasons.

· To consolidate class work.
· To inform parents of the nature of their child’s work.
· For parents to help with a particular difficulty.
· To establish a formal study routine.
The homework programme for the autumn term is as follows:
Spelling words should be revised Monday, Tuesday ,Wednesday , Thursday for Friday revision check.
Monday Homework Maths - This term our Monday homework will come from our revision booklet. Check which page we are working on as we don't always stick to the order.
