A range of home learning tasks that are age suitable is set for all children. These become more formal as the children move through the school. We try to strike the right balance of challenge and accessibility but sometimes further adjustments may need to be made. Should you have any concerns about your child’s homework, you can always discuss it first with your child’s teacher.
Daily home reading is essential, initially supported by an adult, but becoming independent as a child grows more confident. For younger children, home reading is aligned to our Daily Supported Reading programme, and for older children, it is supported in school by our ‘Accelerated Reader’ program.
Weekly spellings are sent home to learn, taken from the National Curriculum year group lists and from our spelling program, which gives children an understanding of patterns and rules and how the written language works.
Confidence and fluency in number facts are vital for a young mathematician, and we encourage home learning of key number facts. For older children, weekly tasks are also set from ‘CGP’ workbooks which we offer parents at a heavily discounted price.
Please check with your child’s class teacher and information under year groups tab for arrangements for homework. Although homework is given out weekly, there is a slight variation in how homework is returned.
