Half Term Topic Home Learning


As well as weekly homework, pupils in Key Stage 2 (yrs 3 - 6) also have homework concerning other subjects. This work is sent out half termly and the pupils are expected to complete one item a week (hand in day Wednesday). There is also 1 ‘Family Pass’ which entitles the child to have a week where none of this homework is completed. However the pupils are expected to complete some work about what they did with their family, as an alternative. For any children who struggle to complete their work at home, we run homework club on a Monday and Tuesday lunchtime.
