Homework

As a parent or carer you can play a vital role in your child’s education, including homework.

Homework tasks will be a combination of open-ended creative tasks, maths tasks, reading and spelling. Find out what the most recent homework task is by choosing from the list below. You can help by encouraging, discussing ideas and by ensuring your child has a good working space at home. Please contact your child’s class teacher with any questions or concerns.

Your child is expected to learn spellings from a list. Learning the spellings for just a short time each day is more effective than leaving it all to the last minute.

Reading on a daily basis is also expected.  Reading aloud with an adult is important throughout the primary years. Even if your child is a fluent reader, having a discussion about the story (for example, the characters’ personalities and actions, the particular choice of words used by the author) is a valuable way to develop reading skills.

For all children learning to count forwards, backwards to recall number facts and practising times tables is essential for good mathematics learning: Practising the targets in the Maths Passports should be a daily homework task for all children from Reception to Y6.
