Homework of some kind is given to all our children. The amount differs according to age. In years 1 – 4 children have a homework book where work is set appropriate to their age. This work becomes more challenging for the older children in years 5 and 6. We also ask that the children read regularly to you, learn spellings, number bonds and times tables. The children are set targets in Literacy and Numeracy. These are shared with the children and they strive hard to achieve them. They are recognised in a variety of ways e.g. certificates of achievement presented in assembly, names on target boards in the class, stickers, stamps etc.

The curriculum at Whitehills is well structured, versatile and thorough. It is enriched by the professional skills of our teachers. Our aim is never to become complacent, but to constantly strive to raise standards, enjoying our work along the way.
