Homework will be given out on Fridays and should be handed in the following Friday at the latest. I would appreciate it being handed in earlier if completed, to allow time for marking. Homework could be English or Maths, or sometimes both. Homework will usually relate to the learning in class in a given week, but could be a form of revision of prior learning. The purpose of homework is to equip the children with the knowledge and skills to be successful in their learning and recapping work at home helps to embed the learning that takes place at school.
Children will earn rewards for completing homework and handing it in on time. All children must complete set homework - this is an essential part of preparation for secondary school. Please contact me via email in the event of any unusual circumstances which interfere with homework. Should your child forget their homework, they will be able to bring this in on the following Monday, although it may not then be able to be marked. Should your child regularly miss their weekly homework deadline, they may be asked to complete this at lunchtimes.
If your child is struggling with their homework, or you are unsure of how to support them, please come and see me. I am happy to offer guidance.
Periodically, normal homework may be suspended to allow for ‘project’ based homework. In the run up to SATs tests, homework may be set more frequently.
Children will no longer be required to practise spellings at home or prepare for a weekly spelling test. All KS2 spelling activities will take place in school as part of our new approach to the teaching of spelling.
