Assembly summer term

5G – Thursday 17th May 2018

5A – Thursday 21st June 2018

The children have homework once a week. The work will be sent home on Friday and should be returned on the following Tuesday. The work will be drawn from what the children are currently learning at school. It provides you and your child with the opportunity to work together and for you to have an insight into some of the areas of the curriculum as well as helping you to see some of the methods the children are learning at school. Homework shouldn’t be a source of grief or stress! If you are having problems with this then please do go and see Nick or Rina.
