Children are encouraged to take reading books home and practice multiplication tables. They will also be given Maths and Literacy tasks which will support their classroom work, such as Key Instant Recall facts and Spellodrome.
It is not the school's policy to give children home learning on a daily basis. Class teachers will inform parents of which day home learning tasks are set and when they are due.
We believe that home learning must be meaningful and worthwhile. Whenever possible it should have a direct link to work being done in school. As a school we expect all home learning activities to be undertaken with a good level of Perfect Presentation in line with our high expectations.
- In the Foundation Stage (Nur & Rec) home reading will be encouraged.
- In Key Stage One (Years 1 & 2) a maximum of 15 minutes home learning will be set on any one night.
- In Key Stage Two (Years 3 & 4) a maximum of 20 minutes home learning will be set on any one night.
- In Key Stage Two (Years 5 & 6) a maximum of 30 minutes home learning will be set on any one night.
Each term all children will be expected to complete a minimum of 3 home learning activities which link to their class based topic. Parents will be required to support their children in completing their home learning tasks. Children will have a homework folder in which to complete the work, and they will be informed by their teacher when this folder should be returned to class. The children will then look at each other's work and give each other feedback.
Please see the Home learning policy for more information.
If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact either the class teacher or a member of the Senior Leadership Team.
