Parents are asked to read with their children on a regular basis. Books are sent home everyday, and parents are asked to record which pages they have read in the little red home/school link book, when they hear their child read. This book can also be used to send other messages into school.
Spellings are sent out to be practised every week from year 1 onwards.
Older children are sometimes asked to complete a homework task over the weekend, usually related to the topic or as part of basic skills in literacy or numeracy.
