Homework

Homework is extremely important. On this page you will find resources to help you and your child do their homework. The information includes what they are studying and how you can support them.

We wrote to parents setting out the new homework arrangements. Please re read this letter. as it sets out  everything you need to know  about the school's approach to homework.

Reading

Building on the great success and popularity of the Read Aloud campaign, we know many pupils still love to bring their teachers written challenges they have completed at home. Some parents have also asked for more support in helping their child with written work at home. With this in mind, we are delighted to announce that we have secured two new fantastic resources for our families Reading Eggs and Reading Eggspress: exciting online reading programmes designed to motivate and excite your child with reading, as well as building their reading skills and confidence. Login details are in the letter above.

Maths

We are also delighted to announce that we have also bought into Mathletics which is a targeted, rewarding and captivating online learning resource, which is aligned to curriculum standards. Your child has take-home access to Mathletics – they simply sign in with their school username and password using any compatible computer or mobile device. The Class Teacher will assign homework tasks on a weekly basis. 

We also have a resource setting out homework expectations and the partnership we want with our parents, which also has hints and tips on how to help your child. Please let us have any feedback, comments, and suggestions.

What we ask of you

If parents and pupils choose to engage with homework, their teachers will give regular feedback in any books handed in. If parents and pupils choose not to engage with homework, this is parental choice and teachers will not chase parents and there will be no consequences for pupils who, for some reason, cannot engage with the optional homework tasks. Of course, we hope that all our pupils will be excited to complete the tasks set and use these tasks to become even better at their schoolwork

Our minimum expectation remains the same however, and we expect each child to do 15 minutes of reading (to an adult if possible), 10 minutes of spelling practice and 10 minutes times tables practice EVERY DAY!  In addition to this, we expect that each child engages with Reading Eggs and Reading Eggspress and Mathletics.

Staff have also worked hard to produce curriculum booklets which have lots of information to help you support your child’s learning including. Visit our curriculum booklets page.
