Homework

Homework and helping your child at home was an area for development from the “Parent Surveys” sent home a few weeks ago. I have outlined for every year group what activities and homework to expect. We expect homework to be completed and brought back into school or completed online e.g. maths. If homework is persistently not completed, children will be required to complete the work in our daily “Homework Club” sessions.

 

The photo below that outlines further activities and ideas in order for you to support your child’s learning.

If parents want to keep things simple with providing additional support at home, as a School we suggest that you focus on 3 areas:

·       Read every day with your child, talk about the text and pictures and read to your child.

·       Practice times tables – ensure your child has a good knowledge of the times tables..

·       Handwriting – short daily practice using the style provided.
