We hold parent evenings in October, March and July. Parents are invited into school to discuss their child’s achievements and progress. These are very important in helping to build a positive working relationship between home and school, and we ask all parents to attend.
We regularly set homework to reinforce children’s learning and we have put guidelines below to indicate how long children should be spending on homework each week:
- Years 1 and 2 – 1 hour a week – reading, spelling, other literacy and number targets
- Years 3 and 4 – 1 ½ hours a week – literacy, numeracy, reading and a task in one other area
- Years 5 and 6 – 30 minutes a day, 2 ½ hours a week – literacy, numeracy, science, reading and other curriculum areas
