Homework

Homework will be set on this page every week on Monday.

Spellings will be tested the following Monday.

Any homework to hand in should be done on a Monday.

There will be a menu here in due course.  The idea is that you can pick one item each week when it suits you best and bring it in on a Monday.  You do not have to do them all and you do not have to do them in order.
