Key Stage One: Year 1 and Year 2

Homework in Key Stage One is set to reinforce work done in the classroom and also to help inform parents of the work being done by their children.

Children are set weekly spellings to learn for a test. They are also expected to read to an adult at least four nights per week for (at least) 5 – 10 minutes. Parents are asked to sign reading records to confirm they have heard their child read.

Written tasks and/or maths may be set each week but these are not compulsory. Children may also be asked to do some research to support topic work.

The amount of homework will increase from Year 1 to Year 2 and it will also increase during the year as the children develop.
