Homework

We set homework to give children the chance to practise 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 to 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!

If 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 weekly. Instead, I'd like to see homework books once a half term to monitor that children are engaging with the homework and completing some of it. There is no exact 'hand in date' but I'd like to see homework books at some point in the last week of each half term. This way, I can identify children who aren't engaging and discuss why.

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