Homework is an important part of school life but it should not be taking over life out of school!

At Krishna Avanti Primary School we expect the children to come to school and work hard. As long as they do that they should be able to go home and do a little homework each week (up to one hour) and enjoy being a child – playing and learning other things through play! Some children do of course really enjoy writing and doing mathematics and other ‘academic’ things and in these instances, they may wish to spend hours and hours studying and doing homework.

If your child has worked hard at school, any homework given that takes more than one hour may be left (if you so wish). In addition to the homework, children will have spellings to learn, books to read and times-tables.

Homework will be uploaded to this page each Wednesday and is to be handed in by the following Wednesday for it to be marked. Home/School Link books will be given out on a Thursday, allowing staff time to mark.

Year 6 Maths Scheme of Learning

Physical education is a statutory subject in the National Curriculum and children well enough to be at school are well enough to take part in physical education.

Requests for children to be excused from physical education will never be given. Physical education, like all subjects, will be appropriately adapted for the needs of all children, regardless of permanent or temporary  abilities and injuries. 

All children must change for physical education and remove jewellery for the lessons. If the child is unable to remove jewellery themselves, do not wear it on physical education days.
