We set homework for the following reasons:
- It helps to consolidate the skills that are being taught at school, and provides children with additional revision opportunities
- It also gives children an opportunity to explore learning in an unstructured setting, encouraging them to be independent and follow their own lines of enquiry.
- In addition, homework creates a partnership between school and family, giving parents an insight into what their child is learning.
Each class receives weekly homework.
Homework will consist of a variety of tasks to develop learning around the topics in class for that week and the overarching unit of work that term.
It is crucial that homework is given due consideration and time as it is a really important part of the partnership between school and home.
