Homework

The government has issued guidance on homework that recommends small amounts of regular homework. Many children enjoy working at home and it is a good way of involving parents with their child’s learning. Each term children will bring home a Topic Letter telling you about the work they are doing in class and asking you to help in certain ways. In addition, we have developed the following programme of basic homework:

 

EYFS

Year 1 & 2

Year 3 & 4

Year 5 & 6

  • Sharing a book every night.
  • Spotting numbers, shapes and colours.
  • Taking opportunities to count
  • Reading each night
  • A small list of spellings once a week
  • Occasional topic related activities
  • Reading each night
  • Spellings once a week
  • Maths, English or topic related activities
  • TT Rockstars
  • Reading each night
  • Spellings once a week
  • Maths, English or topic related activities
  • TT Rockstars & Education City
  • Revision work for SAT

 

We ask all parents to discuss the homework with their children and help to make sure that it is brought back to school on the designated day. Children may not get all activities every week.

 

Physical Education

Our aim in this area is based on developing each child to his/her full potential from the point of view of both skills and fitness. There is, of course, no difference in PE between girls and boys. We recognise the importance for every child of learning to swim and be safe in water. Children in years three and four swim all year and occasionally, some children in year five may be encouraged to continue to extend and consolidate the progress they have made for a time. Organised, competitive sport is and extra curricula activity, with thriving teams in a range of sports. We are very fortunate in having extensive playing fields, separate gymnasium and hall
