Your Homework


Homework is an important part of school life and gives parents and carers the opportunity to share their child’s learning. At Overbury, children are given a variety of different tasks and activities to work on at home, except for reading, spelling and maths letters, all other homework is set in six week blocks to give you time to complete it when you have time.

We use on line homework from Bug Club and Education City which the children can access from home in order to further their skills. (If your child cannot remember their username or password then please contact their class teacher.)

Maths letters are regularly sent home so that your child can teach you what they have been doing in class, accompanied by some explanatory notes – the reply slip enables you to feedback on their understanding.

Weekly spellings are sent home each week. We are trialling a new way of doing this (see letter below) where your child will practice 5 spellings at home and at school.

Please read regularily with your child and write in theit planner so we can see how they have got on.
