All homework will be set on a Friday to be completed by the following Thursday.

Every piece of homework will be rewarded with a raffle ticket.

If your child meets their target (ask them what it is!) in their writing diary, they will earn a bonus raffle ticket.

When you child completes all their homework for the week, they will earn a sticker for the Homework Hall of Fame.

The 10 children with the most stickers at the end of term will be taken on a special trip.

Your child will bring a writing diary home each week. They should do a piece of writing. Their class teacher will suggest a topic of style of writing, but they may wish to write about anything which interests them.

If you and your child are having trouble getting the homework done, please come in and see the class teacher, or Helen, our FLO.

Remember that children can be supported in completing their homework at Breakfast Club and Tea Time Club.

Here's a reminder on how we sound out letters:
