Homework is given out on a Friday, and needs to be handed in the following Wednesday. This gives time for it to be marked, before the next piece is given out. The children need to put their books in the 'Homework book box' or handed in to Mrs Thomas, otherwise it might not be marked.
In addition to homework (which is completed in their blue homework books), children also have fortnightly spellings. These are also given out at the start of each term. The children have the same spelling list for two weeks; the first test (week 1) is a straightforward spelling test of the words and the second test (week 2) is the application test.
