Homework

HOMEWORK

  

At the start of each term, we will be sending home our Curriculum Overviews for each class which will also have our new approach to homework on the reverse of the sheet. These can also be found on each class web page on the school website.

 

We have listened carefully to feedback from our parents/carers and pupils and our intention is for homework to be fun and stress free for all involved. Also, we intend to reinforce the 9 key skills we deliver as part of our curriculum in school through a range of fun, creative tasks that can be completed at home by your child in collaboration with family and friends. 

 

 Homework expectations:  

  • Pupils have a menu of 9 tasks/projects to complete across the term.
  • Tasks can be completed in any order depending on the interests and preference of your child.
  • Completed tasks can uploaded to Tapestry or Seesaw for teachers to see and comment on. You may wish to send some tasks into school to share in class and these may be used for a display.
  • If you need any support or further explanation with a task then please speak to your child’s class teacher.
  • Running alongside the projects, the main homework for all pupils is to read their home reading and keep a log in their reading records. This support is invaluable and will enable the children to make improved progress in their reading.
  • Staff may also set small tasks which include practicing on TT Rock Stars, Spelling Shed or Read Theory.

Teachers have also provided some recommended reading books which may be of interest to your child which you can purchase cheaply or loan from a local library. Reading for pleasure with your child will help to enhance and extend their learning beyond the classroom through a range of linked texts and authors.
