Each week the children attend one KS assembly and one KS hymn practice. For KS1 these take place on Tuesday (assembly) and Wednesday (hymn practice); for KS2 these take place on Thursday (hymn practice) and Friday (assembly). The children also attend whole school worship throughout the year.



Each teacher sets homework and has a clear timetable showing what should be completed each week and when. Children are encouraged to go on the Mathletics site each week and teachers set specific homework which can be monitored at school. Spelling lists are given out by the individual teachers. Please email the office if you need further help. Refer to the Homework policy for extra guidance.
