Homework

 

We set homework to give children the chance to practice the skills they learn in class to help them consolidate and embed learning. Nothing new is taught but it helps the children to have extra exposure and practise the concepts we've covered. Children (or parents) may mark homework themselves to self-assess their understanding and enable them to have a discussion with me in school if they have found something difficult. Homework is for the children. It's about developing ownership of their learning and an understanding that if they want to succeed, they need to put the work in! 

 

This makes it more flexible for you so children are unable to do homework due to a particularly busy week, they can catch up the following week as books will not need to be handed in or checked at school weekly. 

 

This way of doing homework is being trialled this academic year and we always welcome your feedback.
