Extra challenges and projects
Each half term, we will set extra activities for your child to complete at home if they would like to. They should show their work to their class teacher or any of the Senior Leaders.
Children’s work at home significantly contributes to their achievement in school. When we work together to support learning it will have a measurable and lasting effect on your child’s achievement.
There are many benefits to homework, and as parents you will be more aware of the curriculum expectations and what your child is learning. Your children will benefit from working with you and feel proud to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding.
