Homework

Homework is usually given on a Wednesday to be returned for the following Tuesday. If children forget to bring in homework, they have one more day to bring it in. We often mark homework together on Wednesdays so it is important not to forget it. Those who bring in homework on time for Tuesday, will receive an extra housepoint.  Please see the dates in the table below.

Basic Homework Rules:
Please try to help with keeping to deadlines if possible, especially for when we review work together in class.
Ensure written or drawn homework is neat and legible. Internet based homework should have a parent signature in your diary. (except our new Spelling Shed scheme where I can access your activity) Please arrange with Miss Taft to do internet homework at lunchtime if you have problems with this at home. 
Look after worksheets - be organised. If you do lose the homework, please ask for a spare copy well before Tuesday.
