Homework is an extension of pupils' learning in school. However, family time, rest and other extra curricular activities are also vital.
Our Homework non-negotiables are:
To prepare for High School, children will also be given specific homework related to classroom learning. These may involve practicing and consolidating a key skill; preparing for new learning; SATs revision or presenting work. These activities will be shared in your child's homework book.
Please check with your child regularly to see if they have tasks to complete- These will be outlined in their diaries. Homework books should be kept in your child's bag and pupils will be placed on Amber if homework is not handed in.
This year, we are focusing on reading. In order to succeed at school, children need to be able to read fluently, have varied and rich vocabulary and fully comprehend what they have read. Consequently, each student will have a diary ato record what they have read- these should be signed weekly by the parent and teacher. A reading journal also encourages children to reflect on what they have read. The children are challenged to read as many books as possible and have to complete a book review of each one.
Awards will be given to children who read between 10 and 30 books. There is also a list of reading activities which your child can complete.
Please bring the reading book and journal to school daily.
