Homework is an opportunity for parents to share learning with their children, whilst revisiting or
extending classroom learning; it helps the children to move on. It also helps the children to be
prepared for High School homework.

discussing the text (at least 50 mins per week)- parents please sign each time to enable your
child to be entered into a weekly draw for a prize

If homework isn't done, then children will be expected to catch up with this in school, so that they
are not falling behind their peers. We are always ready to talk through homework with children or
