To support our UKS2 children in taking ownership of their homework and to ensure they have the resources or support to complete it; there is a Thursday lunchtime homework club (where children can choose or are directed to attend).


Topic Homework:

Each half term, a grid is sent out within each key stage which links with the topic, their learning and our school value focus for the following half term. Within each key stage the pupils are recommended to complete a number of their chosen activities and each completed activity is rewarded with dojo points.  At the end of the half term all classes showcase this homework to share and celebrate the children’s hard work and efforts. These homework grids will be available on our website in the 'Children' section.


Home Readers:

Children are asked to read a minimum of 3 times per week for at least 15 minutes.  We ask that the children's reading records are signed and handed in on a daily basis to be stamped and dojo points given out.  Children who complete this will gain an extra 10 minute breaktime on a Friday afternoon.  


Remote Education:

If your child is self-isolating at home (due to Covid symptoms or a positive Covid test result) but are well enough to continue with their school work, then we will support them by providing remote learning through our online platforms and MS Teams.  For detailed information on the policies and procedures we follow in such cases, please refer to our school website-key information-remote education section.
