Dear Parents/Carers,

Please find attached a copy of your child’s homework, as part of the provision which our school has put in place to ensure your child’s continued learning.

The expectation is that your child completes 1 English, 1 Math and 1 Foundation task every day. Teachers have planned 3 lessons for 10 days. Also, we would like to remind you that in Summer Term all pupils will have to sit a Times Tables exam/test, which is to determine whether they can fluently recall their multiplication tables. The test will be delivered as an online, on-screen digital assessment.

Please keep in mind that all homework must be returned to school the day the school re-opens and your child returns to school. We will be using the homework to continue teaching and learning at school.

We trust that you will work alongside us to fully prepare your child.

Thank you for your continuous support.
