Homework Help

 We believe that a carefully balanced homework programme is beneficial for children for the following reasons:

  • To give parents opportunities to be directly involved in their child’s learning
  • To reinforce the partnership between home and school
  • To consolidate skills learnt in school and give opportunities to extend learning

If you need support to help your child with their homework, please speak to their class teacher.

Each half term the children are asked to do a project on a theme they are studying in school.  Below are a number of websites that offer information. There are also revision websites to help children get ready for any tests that are going on in school. 

NOTE: While we have taken time to pick out websites that we see suitable and safe for our children, Colville Primary is not responsible for the content found on these sites.
