Children are encouraged to read at home. Books are provided by the school but we hope that parents will promote a love of books through the Library Service and by building up the child’s personal collection at home. It is hoped that parents will take an interest in the topics being studied at school and help their children to follow the work or do further research, if the need arises, as homework.

Children will be given phonics or spellings to learn at home.


Children in Year 2 will bring home their ‘Talk Homework’ each week in preparation for their Quiet Writing activity. Children in Year 1 will start to bring home ‘Talk Homework’ in the Spring Term.

On occasions, children may be given specific tasks to be undertaken at home. We hope that you will be able to encourage and support them to complete these tasks.
