Children will be given homework on a Monday, and this must be returned by the following Friday morning. Each week the children at TGA will be provided with spelling and maths homework. In addition to this, the children will be set a series of activities to complete over a number of specified weeks. It is expected that children will read at home every day. The children will have one homework book which they complete all of their homework in.
Any child not returning homework will be expected to complete it during the class ‘Golden Time’ session that Friday.
