Homework is a crucial element of the teaching and learning process and children are encouraged to work at home with their parents on a regular basis. It is expected that all children from Reception class to Year 6 will read with a parent each night. From Yrs 1 to 6 Numeracy and Literacy homework will be given every Friday and is to be handed in by the following Wednesday. Yrs 3 – 6 are given spellings to learn on a Monday and will be given a spelling test on the following Friday. There is an after school homework club on Monday for Years 5 and 6 and Friday for Years 3 & 4.

The Nursery and Reception classes are given a piece of Numeracy and Literacy homeowrk on a Friday which is to be handed in by the following Friday.

From time to time teachers will send home other homework relating to work being undertaken in the classroom. Children in Year 3 who are preparing for First Holy Communion are encouraged to complete preparation activities at home. The homework provided by the school is designed to promote the active involvement of parents in the education of their child and this should be an enjoyable, practical activity.
