Primary Homework

We believe that learning is a shared responsibility between children, parents and teachers. We like to work together with parents in partnership, expanding the curriculum, extending it to the home and building on experiences shared outside school.

Homework is used to reinforce and consolidate activities which have recently taken place in the classroom. The nature of tasks and the amount of time to be spent on homework activities change as students progress through school, in line with our homework policy. Class teachers will always ensure that students and parents are aware of what tasks are involved and homework deadlines.

Teachers set regular, appropriately differentiated homework in the different curriculum areas and this will usually involve key skills such as reading, writing, vocabulary, handwriting, times tables and numeracy skills. Children may also be asked to undertake research work or special project assignments to reinforce topics being studied in school

Homework however can take many forms and is not necessarily written work. It is any task that a child is asked to complete at home, including talking about what they have been learning. Having to explain the work that they've been doing at school is a great way of promoting thought and hence understanding.
