Homework Tips

Tips for good homework habits

  • Do find a quiet place at home to use as a homework area. It needs a flat surface, a good light source and the right equipment eg pens, pencils, ruler, scissors, glue.
  • Do plan a homework timetable and agree on when your child will do their homework.
  • Do discuss any homework tasks with your child and how it connects with what they are studying at school.
  • Do turn off the TV - but you could have music on if they find it helpful.
  • Don't let homework become a chore. Keep it fun and make it a special time that you both look forward to.




Homework is set on a Friday to be returned by the following Thursday. It is normally on a maths theme based on the week's work but it will occasionally link into topic or other subjects. Each holiday children will bring home their holiday homework book instead.


Spelling tests are also set each Friday with spelling tests on FRIDAYS the following week. Spellings are normally a combination of phonic spelling patterns and keywords. We encourage children to practice their spellings using look, cover, write, check. It can help to underline the spelling patterns for those words to encourage children to identify the phonic patterns. Even copying words or using different colours to write with can help children to learn their spellings. 


Please could children bring all spelling books and homework back by each Thursday as spelling tests will be completed in the back of the spelling books
