Our Homework Approach
Each child will be given a subject related workbook. They are also expected to share books and to read at least 5 times a week. For our youngest children the same two books will be read again and again to enable each child to practice and master the essential reading skills. As we all know practice makes perfect.
It is key that by the time each child reaches the end of Year 2, they have mastered the essential skills of reading – all of the basics. Below is the homework timetable. Each child must bring their workbook back into school on the set day. The teacher will go through the answers and address any mis-understanding.
Each homework is worth 1 reward for each child and each reward earns points for their House (Blue, Green, Red J and Yellow). Only the child will handle their own work book.
Each workbook is to interrupt the child forgetting knowledge and skills they have already learnt.
Reading books – Each child is expected to read at least 5 times a week for a minimum of 20 minutes. For children in Reception, Years 1 & 2, home reading books must come back into school every Friday and new books will be sent home each Friday. For children in Years 3-6, each teacher will tell their class when books need to be in school.
