Homework is set on a weekly basis every week for Year 1. It is set on a Friday to be handed in the following Wednesday. In addition to the 'expected' homework, teachers will set a 'non-compulsory task each half term linked in to the topic. This is a very open task with the aim of enabling children to complete this in any way they wish. These activities are usually very popular with the children and we all enjoy sharing the outcomes in class.
Reading practise is an on-going 'homework' expectation and very important. We recommend that ideally your child reads at home for a short while every day, but certainly five times a week to consolidate reading skills.
If you have any questions about the homework tasks, please do contact your child's class teacher.
