Homework

 

  About year 6's homework:  Year 6 are given various types of homework to consolidate their learning in school. We would really appreciate your help and cooperation in this. 

  • Weekly- Children get weekly Qur'an memorisation, reading, spelling and maths homework. Arabic homework will be given as and when needed. 
  • Half termly- Children will be given a homework grid every half term, which corresponds with activities and tasks to do related to their current topic. The children can choose when to do their tasks but do remind them every now and then, so they don't rush it during the last weekend. 
  • Holidays- Children will get a piece of homework to do over the holidays to prepare them for the next topic.
