Homework in the Primary School

Homework enables teachers to assess pupil’s understanding of what they have already learnt at school and it also encourages them to develop good study habits.

In Key Stage 1 and 2, your child’s class teacher will set homework on a weekly basis. Homework can bring children, parents, and teachers together in a common effort to improve student learning. Parents are therefore encouraged to support in a number of ways:

  • Encourage a positive attitude towards homework
  • Praise rather than criticize
  • Encourage your child to undertake his/her homework independently.   
  • Agree with your child a suitable time for doing homework, taking into account, the need for playtime, relaxation and family time.
  • Provide a quiet place, free from distractions, interruptions and of course, T.V.
  • Ensure your child has a pen, pencil, ruler and eraser.
  • Use the Writing and Maths targets in the homework book to support your child.

Normally, homework consists of the following:

  • Spelling
  • Numeracy - homework based around the area of Maths being studied that week.
  • Other, which will consist of Literacy, Humanities, Science….. 

From Year 4 upwards, a child is normally expected to complete the following:
