Helping your Child at Home
Homework is an important part of the home/school partnership which is essential to the progress of our children. A good, well organised homework programme helps children to develop the skills and attitudes they will need for successful, independent, lifelong learning.
It is the co-operation between school and home whereby children’s knowledge and understanding can be supported and developed by parents/carers.
The academy expects parents to support and value work at home.
Half-termly information sheets, indicating areas of learning which can be supported at home, are sent each half term.
ALLOCATED HOMEWORK AND TIME
All children from Reception to Year 6 are expected to read regularly at home, ideally every day.
In addition to this, the following homework will be set:
- Reception 1 piece of homework per week
- Years 1 & 2 1 hour per week 1 piece of homework
- Years 3 & 4 1½ hours per week 2 pieces (1 of which is maths)
- Years 5 & 6 30 minutes per day 3 pieces (1 of which is maths)
(Year 6 may also receive homework to complete during the holidays)
A full copy of the Homework Policy can be accessed from the ‘Policies’ section under the ‘Our Academy’ tab.
The BBC is a very useful website with information on how to support your child at home with reading, maths and homework. There are also other links to educational games. Please check:
