Homework support for teachers

Hamilton provides English homework for Reception through Year 6. 

There are twelve activities a term – that is one a week taking into account festivals and school trips and allowing a little flexibility! Choose the activity to fit work you are doing.  It is important that the activities  you select lead in to the work you are about to do with the children so that you can do adequate follow-up in class. The activities are linked to key skills.

There is a range of support documentation for you to download and use with different age groups below. Use the tabs at the very bottom of the page to find homework for your year group.
