Homework for Penguins
Children take home a new reading book every Monday and Thursday. Children’s reading skills improve enormously when they read regularly at home. We appreciate it when parents sign their child’s reading record to show that their child has tried hard.
Every Tuesday we visit the school library to choose an exciting book that children can take home and read with their families.
From Friday 22nd September, Year 1 children will be given a piece of homework every week to complete. We encourage parents to support their child with this whenever possible. Children should try hard to remember to bring their homework file back by Wednesday of the following week, for it to be marked and ready for a new piece of homework to be sent out on the Friday.
Homework for Reception children will be explained at the Curriculum evening, which is on Wednesday 4th October. Reception children will then receive their first piece of homework.
Weekly spelling tests for Year 1 children will begin after the half term holiday.
