Homework is an important part of children’s’ education. Initially this will be in the form of parents hearing their children read A “Home Reading Diary” will be given to every child from Reception to Year 6 and parents are asked to spend about 10 minutes a day either sharing a story, listening to the child read or discussing a book. Please use the home reading diary as a way of communicating progress with the class teacher.
In addition children will be given work to do at home. This may be a spelling list, multiplication tables or finding out about a topic to help with class work. In year 6 the amount of homework will increase to support their SATs preparation. We ask parents to support and help their children ensuring homework is completed to a good standard.
Provision can be found for a child to have a quiet place in school to complete homework on request or where there is a need.
An active homework club runs each week. This is very popular and provides a good environment to complete homework.
