All students are expected to read every school night for at least 20 minutes. Basic Facts and Spelling are important and need continual work. Research topics, spare time activities and maths exercises could be expected particularly for senior pupils. Every student has access to Mathletics, Reading Eggs and Spellodrome from home as long as there is internet access. These programs will allow all children to continue their literacy and numeracy learning at home. Any issues or concerns over homework should be discussed with the teachers as soon as practical
