The best and most beneficial homework for all children is reading and talking with parents about books and their learning in school. Every child is expected to read every night and they have Reading Record books where comments and success about their reading can be recorded.

In addition to reading, we expect our children to consolidate their learning in school by completing a spelling task and a mathematics or topic task each week. Each child from Year 1 upwards, will be have weekly homework, which is uploaded to Google Classroom each Friday.

Children are encouraged to complete their homework and then upload photographs back onto Google Classroom. Larger tasks, or those which children are specifically proud of may be brought into school to share with their class.

Class Teachers will set homework tasks which are age appropriate and also reflect the needs of each individual child, including those with special educational needs and those requiring further challenge.

Our homework is designed to support and consolidate children’s learning and to help children (particularly older ones) get into good routines and habits, in preparation for the more rigorous homework of high school.

We want to work in partnership with parents to support children with their homework. If parents have any concerns, we ask them to speak to their child’s class teacher.
