We believe that there is an advantage in children spending regular periods of time, initially quite short, on different learning activities that support the work they do in class.
Home Learning refers to any work or activity which pupils are asked to do outside lesson time, either on their own or with parents or carers.
Homework need not get in the way of other activities which children may do after school such as sport, music and clubs of various kinds. Planning a balance of activity and commitment at home is important.

Our Home learning tasks may be set linked to the thematic curriculum being studied that term. Homework for younger children will involve parents and carers in joint activities. Reading will be an important focus throughout the school, be it independent reading, sharing or listening.
Each term there are 10 topic themed learning tasks
Weekly we expect the children to read every evening. We also will be expecting them to rehearse their spellings at home. Children are also directed to learn their timestables at home. https://www.timestables.co.uk/multiplication-tables-check/
Year 6 children may also be sent home specific work to assist them in their preparations for the Key Stage two SATS. This work will be directed daily and the resources sent home.
