Homework from school is seen as a means of promoting a positive attitude to learning and involving parents more closely in the learning process. It focuses mainly on the basic skills of Literacy and Numeracy with clear links to class work.
English homework is uploaded to the Pupil Area of the school website.
Spellings are given out at the start of each unit and children are encouraged to practise these at home.
Maths homework is completed on-line using MyMaths.
In Reception, pupils have key words and sounds to learn.
We also ask for your ongoing assistance with reading, times tables and number bonds. The more we can work together the easier your child will find learning!
We encourage parents to work with their children on homework tasks to promote discussion, deepen understanding and consolidate learning.
Children take part in many out of school activities such as Brownies, Beavers, sports clubs etc. and these clubs are wonderful for the development of your child. If attendance at these clubs makes it difficult to complete homework please speak to your child's teacher.
Pupil planners are used to record any reading that you carry out at home. There are also spaces to note down any questions or queries that you might need to share with the class teacher, any concerns over homework or updates on things that your child is doing outside of school. We will try to put a copy of the weekly spellings in these planners too and inform you of how your child did in any spelling tests or mental arithmetic tests. At the front of the Pupil Planners is our Home/School Agreement for you and your child to sign.
