Homework

Children from all classes are encouraged to complete regular homework; the amount is varied according to age. All children are expected to take home their reading books regularly. All classes operate a two homework book system and homework is handed out on a Friday and collected in the following week.

Homework becomes more formal as children progress up the school.

Regular short work sessions at home, help to foster the self-discipline and independent work skills that will be needed later on. 

We hope that our parents will support us by: 

  • Reading daily with and to your children
  • Discussing the homework
  • Finding somewhere quiet and comfortable where your child can concentrate on their homework task
  • Helping your child learn their times tables
  • All children are encouraged to join the local library

During school holidays we adopt a no homework policy. We think it is important that children also have a break from schoolwork and we encourage them to spend their holidays having down time and playing. Often during holidays, parents want to take their children out and we do not want children worrying about homework during these family times.

Of course we encourage you to continue to read with your children throughout the holidays and to carry on with times tables and revising spellings as these are the foundations to being successful later in life.
