Homework

Homework is a useful way of allowing children time to practice and consolidate skills taught in class. We recently invited parents and carers to share their thoughts on our homework as part of our annual review of homework.  

Currerntly, children bring home their Homework Books which will contain homework tasks. These tasks take into account some of the different ways children prefer to learn. There may be writing activities, science or maths tasks, art and design projects etc. Children will be asked to choose one task each week to complete. Can we remind parents and children that the presentation of their work is important, as is spending the appropriate amount of time on homework tasks?  We will also be sending home spellings and times tables homework for some year groups.

Reading Books

Please ensure that your child has their reading book and their Reading Record books in school every day. Reading books are matched to each child's current reding ability. We monitor reading during the week and encourage children to change their books regularly. As a minimum, we expect all children to read and have their book signed at least 3 times each week.  We aim to recognise those pupils who read more than this and reward their efforts. We appreciate you signing your child's record book each time they read and find any comments you may add useful.
