Homework

Homework is set every week on a Thursday or Friday depending on your child’s year group and must be returned to school the following Tuesday.

We pride ourselves with the high standards and expectations of the work and learning that our children produce in school and this expectation is the same with the homework.

Below are a few tips that you may find useful.

  • It is important to look at the homework grid in your child’s book which has a selection of Maths, English and general activities for your child to choose from weekly.
  • The homework will be based on previous learning to deepen your child’s understanding, consolidate and assess your child’s learning.
  • Homework should be written in black ink pen unless it is a drawing which should be completed with a sketch pencil. Cursive handwriting is expected with neat legible letters. Homework should be well presented showing a pride of achievement. If your child does not have a black pen please speak to your child’s class teacher.
  • Keep distractions to a minimum. This means no TV, loud music, or phone calls. This will allow your child to concentrate and work to the best of their ability.
  • Your child will not learn if they don’t think for themselves and make their own mistakes. You can make suggestions and help with directions but it is your child’s job to do the learning.
  • Be a motivator and monitor. Ask about your child’s learning during the week. Give encouragement, check homework for completion and standards and make yourself available for questions and concerns.
