I recognise that homework can sometimes be a source of stress and conflict which I would like to mitigate.

I want your child to take more responsibility for their learning and become more independent. I have told the children that they are to try their best to complete the task in the time (usually 30 minutes) and if they cannot, to write me a short note as to what the difficulty was. I am delighted if parents help and support home work, but if they can’t (or won’t!) do it please let me know so I can assist them.

Your child has a homework diary in which to record their homework themselves, this is part of preparing the children for Year 6 and for secondary transfer and procedures. Homework may be given more frequently than outlined below, although the time allocation will be the same as previously. I may still provide additional written instructions with further details and guidance as children will have a limited space in which to record information. 


The current plan for homework is detailed below:

Monday –GPS (Grammar /Punctuation) due the following Monday

Tuesday – Maths - hand in Friday

Wednesday – Reading

Thursday – Topic/Science/ICT/RE

Friday – Spellings for test following Monday


The same presentational and layout expectations apply for homework as in class:

  • Maths work – in pencil
  • Other work – in handwriting/fountain pen, not biro please
  • All work to be dated, titled and underlined.
  • Loose sheets such as printouts and worksheets will be added to their exercise books or folders.

I will be keeping a record of the children’s reliability and effort in these homework tasks.
