Homework Guidelines

 

Children will be given homework each week in accordance within the following guidelines. All children are expected to read each day to an adult (or to discuss their independent reading if they are confident readers in the older classes). Some children may be given additional homework tasks to support their individual targets, this may include spending time on Maths Whizz (our online tutoring programme used by selected children in years four, five and six).

 

Teachers set homework linked to the work that children have been doing in class; the aim of the task may be to introduce something new or to consolidate / extend the learning that they have been doing. In most cases children should be able to complete the task independently, although younger children may need more support. If your child is unsure of how to complete the tasks set, or seems unsure of what to do, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher. We would much rather you talked to us than have ‘homework battles’!
