Carr Head Primary

Our mission statement is to prepare the children of today to flourish in the world of tomorrow through nurturing mind, body and soul.

Homework


The children will get a 'Takeaway' project to complete for a given date each half term. I'm sure you're familiar with this by now! 

In addition to this, the children will have a weekly piece of literacy, mathematics and spellings homework to complete. This will be given out every Friday and be expected to be handed in for the following Thursday. 

The children should also read every evening. Please ensure their diary gets completed. Below, are a few useful links/ passwords to aid your child's learning.
