Our policy is not to give homework in the holidays. However, if you’d like to support your child’s learning at home, have a look at the Homework Tips for Parents (which has ideas for extra practice) and the National Expectations section (which should give you some ideas about what to learn more about).
Don’t forget: all children should be reading on a daily basis: comics, books, websites. Why not make a trip to the library this holiday?
Older children should also practise times tables (why not re-cap all the tables you’ve practised so far this year?).
