Homework will go home every Friday night, to be returned on Monday morning. Following parent feedback, topic-related homework will be handed out throughout the year. Children will have longer to complete these tasks and will be made aware of this when receiving the homework. Spellings will also be handed out at the beginning of the week, to be learned ready for a test on a Friday.
