‘Invite, Include, Imagine, Inspire’ Our values this term are 'Thankfulness' Thessalonians 5:18 Give thanks in all circumstances. Article 24 You have the right to the best health care possible, safe water to drink, nutritious food, a clean and safe environment, and information to help you stay well.



St Peter's believes in the importance of children prioritising homework which is going to have the most amount of impact on their learning in primary school. We also believe that children need to have a consequence in school for not completing homework so that it is not seen as an ‘optional’ activity. This also serves to teach children to take responsibility for their learning, which is a vital skill, particularly in preparation for secondary school.


Therefore, the homework you child will be getting on a weekly basis is: 



Homework set 

Consequence for not completing homework




Daily reading

10 minutes a day for Reception and KS1 children. 20 minutes a day for KS2 children.

Parents need to sign diaries weekly and these are checked in class on a Friday.

Children to read during Friday afternoon lunchtime (15mins KS1, 25mins KS2)

Spellings yr 1-6

Spelling lists for the half-term will be given to children at the beginning of term to be stuck in their diaries and will also be available on the school website. They will need to do a written task with the spellings in their homework books (see overleaf example) and they will be tested on the spellings for that week on a Friday.

Children to complete the spelling task in their homework books during playtime on a Friday.

Maths yr 1-6

Children to learn the ‘superhero’ mental maths targets ready for a test in class on a Friday. Targets are available on the school website.

Children will not move on to new targets until they can complete their given targets.



There are also plenty of home learning opportunities on our website. Please visit the 'Children' tab, as well as the 'Curriculum' tab for more resources. Children will also be occasionally given project homework which is linked to their topic in class or whole school learning. This will vary depending on the year group. Year 6 and Year 2 may also be given extra homework at times in order to prepare for their SAT exams.


Please note that children with special educational needs may have adaptations to the expectations outlined above. This will be communicated to parents by the class teacher.


We would appreciate your support and hope that you also value the importance of ensuring that children are completing their weekly homework.
