Thorpe Lea Primary School

'A dedicated community working together, nurturing a safe, happy school where all children can achieve their potential'



All pupils are given weekly homework tasks, I would ask that maximum effort is given to ensure it is completed and returned on time. Although I hope the children are able to take responsibility for and complete their work independently, I am always delighted when parents choose to help children who become stuck. Please don't be afraid to support your child if they need extra help at home. Should a set task baffle even the adults, please don't hesitate to come and see me!



Children will be given two books to read over the course of the week. These books are sent out with homework and due back in in Tuesdays. It is important parents sign the reading diary to confirm both books have been read. 



Your child will be provided with a spelling rule on a Thursday and a list of words connected with this rule. Three times a week, we will complete activities linked to the spellings ready for their test on Tuesday giving pupils several days to practice their spellings, however they will need to work on these at home also.



Children will be given a literacy written task linked to the class text each week or alternatively they will be given a reading comprehension activity. It is important to ensure children and given time to complete written activities carefully and neatly. In my experience written homework can look substandard to a child's class work if it is rushed.



Pupils are asked to practice their tables daily. They will have a weekly times tables test. One piece of written homework will be set a week. Which will be directly linked to the topics covered in class. This homework will be differentiated to make sure it is accessible to all students. Your child should complete the task which is the same color they work on in class.


Homework is handed out on a Thursday

Homework is due in the following Tuesday

(Should there be any problem with meeting the weekly deadline, please speak to me before Tuesday)
