In Class 3, children are given one or two pieces of homework each week on a Friday. This needs to be completed and handed in on the following Wednesday. In addition, at the beginning of each term, children will be given a home learning topic grid. They need to choose an activity from the grid to complete every two weeks. A different amount of house points will be earnt depending on the activity chosen.
