It is the policy of the school to provide learning for the children to do at home to consolidate work taught in school. We ask parents to take an interest in their children’s home learning and give encouragement and assistance to see it is completed.
The information below gives an indication of current expectations. It is anticipated that children in KS1 will spend between 20-30 minutes each week day evening on their homework and KS2 between 30-60 minutes each week day evening.
If home learning is regularly completed it can make a significant difference to your child’s progress. Teachers are always happy to discuss your child’s homework with you.
Maths homework will consist of rote learning activities, such as learning times tables.
Children will also be given an outline of the next weeks maths subjects and associated vocabulary.
Spellings will be given based on word list provided in the new English curriculum
Reading should be undertaken on a daily basis. Ideally the child should read to an adult who will question the child about the book being read. As the children progress they will move away from the school reading scheme and begin to choose their own books. Children should record the books they have read in the provided Homework diary.
Additional activities are available via the internet. Pupils will be given a log in for maths activities in ‘The Learning Zone’ which is lined to the Schools Maths Scheme. A list of other useful sites is available elsewhere on the School Website.
