Year 1 and Year 2
Homework is set each week to allow children to practice the learning from the week or to be exposed to age related work in English and Maths.
Homework is given out on Friday and should be brought back on the following Wednesday. Children are expected to complete their homework neatly, thinking about their presentation at all times.
In addition to the weekly set homework, children should read each evening at home. When they read to someone at home this should be recorded in their reading record which needs to be brought in each day.
Children should be encourage to sound out unfamiliar words by first looking for 'special friends' and then sounding out each letter. To improve fluency and reading speed, books should be read several times.
