Homework

Throughout our Primary School at NAIS Manila we have a No Homework Policy.

Whilst this may seem a progressive approach, it is something that has had a positive impact over the past few years.

At NAIS Manila we are very keen that our children are as active as possible outside of school, with many taking part in additional activities (swimming, football, Girl Scouts and many others) and that learning at home should reflect the broad nature of our curriculum within school.

Pastorally, this leads to our children being well rounded and having positive feelings towards their schooling at NAIS Manila, as well as being academically high achieving within school.

Weekly spellings can be sent home and Keywords for EAL students.

All children are expected to read at home daily and teachers will provide details of what classes are covering in lessons via the parent portal weekly review.

The encouragement of parent / child interaction is vital and parents will be expected to discuss learning at home and to reinforce in a real life context wherever possible.

Transitioning to Secondary

Once children reach Year 6, as part of their transition to Secondary, they begin to receive project based research homework. This helps prepare them for an upcoming topic and reinforces learning in class. They produce presentations on aspects of a topic they are really interested in, and share them with their peers.

At this stage children are ready to start managing their learning at home, in preparation for Year 7.
