The children receive two pieces of homework a week in Year 6 to prepare them for Secondary School. Children are also expected to read daily and learn their spellings/times-tables.

If children do not complete their homework, they are to do it in their own time in school.


If you have any questions or want to speak to me, please do not hesitate to contact me by coming into school, phoning school or signing up to Class Dojo and speaking to me directly there through its secure messaging system. Thank you!
