Homework and Spellings

Homework will be set on Thursday for completion the following Thursday.

Mrs Hughes' English group spellings are in the pupil spelling logs from Tuesday (and are included for information in the weekly homework on a Thursday) and will be tested on a Monday morning.

No physical or email homework needs to be returned.

Reading books are issued on a Wednesday to be returned the following Tuesday. The 'Boom' system is the same as it was in Year 1. Books will only be changed if they are returned on a Tuesday and marked as complete on 'Boom' (by 8.50am Tue morning). If books aren't returned we assume you want to keep them longer which is fine. If books aren't marked as complete we assume they have not been completed and will be returned to you for completion.

Maths - Numbots (Autumn onwards) and TTRS (Spring onwards) are fun ways to practise skills.


Knowledge Organisers - There are Maths and Science 'Knowledge Organisers' in the 'Homework Pack - Useful Stuff' which give you the core learning covered in each topic.

Handwriting and Phonics -  guides / lists / examples are in the 'Homework Pack - Useful Stuff'
