What about homework?

 

Homework is set across the school. In setting homework we aim to:

  • Consolidate skills and understanding in English, maths and across the curriculum
  • Encourage and develop independent learning
  • Prepare children for secondary transfer in Year 6

A variety of types of homework are used depending on the age and attainment of the children. These may include:

  • Reading
  • Revisiting phonics
  • Learning spellings
  • Completion of class work
  • A piece of research on either a familiar or a new topic
  • Revision
  • A piece of Mathematics, Science or English work

Homework increases gradually over the time that your child is at primary school. If at any time you have concerns about homework please arrange to speak to your child's class teacher.
