Home Learning

Once the children have settled into school in Term 1, we start setting homework weekly. The children will be expected to write their homework in their homework diaries on a Monday, when it is set and independently complete over the course of the week.

Please sign your child's homework diary at the end of the week to acknowledge that you have seen them complete their homework, including reading.


Please see the homework expectations below:

  • Reading: 

    It is essential that children read daily, preferably to an adult. The benefits to learning and development of the individual are huge, widely-documented and supported by research. Reading is the best gift you can give your child. Please ensure you are reading for a minimum of 30 minutes a day, completing quizzes online, now available at
