Key Stage 1 (Years 1-2) and Key Stage 2 (Years 3-6)
In Primary, Homework is designed, planned, marked and assessed according to the different ages, abilities and needs of the pupils. It has purpose, interest and is relevant to the school’s curricular objectives. It helps children to develop skills and attitudes they will need for independent learning. It also supports the development of enquiry and investigation and can supplement and extend the work carried out in school.
Homework focuses mainly on developing literacy and numeracy skills and may include: learning spelling patterns and high frequency words, practising correct punctuation and grammar, number games and tasks.
In addition, children will be given other kinds of homework which may include:
- Research and/or design projects
- Reading in preparation for lessons
- Preparing oral presentations
- More traditional writing assignments
Homework will be given in a menu format and will change and reflect the topics covered throughout the year.
