Homework Help (5 to 11 years)

Homework help sessions are a great place to learn how to use the library to help with homework projects. We have a reference-only collection of non-fiction books to help with homework for Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 of the National Curriculum. Children can also get three free prints (up to two can be in colour) every day for homework. No excuses for not handing your work in on time!
