Homework

There is a changing emphasis/expectation as the child progresses through the school. A few children will need a special programme of homework which will be individually organised by the teacher/parent/child concerned.

Foundation Stage
Parents are encouraged to hear their children read at home. The reading diary is taken home and is used as a two-way communication between the teacher and parents about the progress of an individual child.

Key Stage 1 
Parents are encouraged to hear their children read at home. The reading diary is taken home and is used as a two-way communication between the teacher and parents about the progress of an individual child.

Maths and English homework is set for all children and more information is contained in the class newsletter sent out at the beginning of each term.

Key Stage 2  
Each child has a Homework Book and set homework is taken home once a week. All homework is practice/reinforcement of skills/concepts learnt during the week or preparation work ready for forthcoming lessons. Homework will be at the level the children are working at within their class ability groups or year groups.  Some homework is handwritten and some is online learning.

Homework should take between 20-30 minutes per piece.

Reading at home is still encouraged and in addition, children throughout the school can borrow books from the library or fortnightly from the visiting library van.
