Homework

A good, well-managed homework programme helps pupils to develop the independent learning skills they need for successful lifelong learning.  We are grateful for parental support in organising homework.

Typically, we expect that pupils will:

  • Read at home for fifteen minutes each evening and discuss books with adults or older siblings

  • Learn multiplication tables and spellings each week

  • Practise skills including handwriting, writing, numeracy or reading comprehension

  • Be asked to complete their work at home if they have made insufficient effort during class time

  • Be given additional, more extensive homework tasks in Year 6 to help them prepare for secondary school.
