Homework is any work to be carried out at home which has originated from School and which is set by the class teacher on a daily or weekly basis. Marking homework forms an integral part of our assessment. Homework is not set for school holidays.
Types of homework include:
Time allocation recommended by the DfES:
Reception: 10 minutes reading daily (within school a selection of High Frequency Words are sent home for recognition work).
Year One and Two: 1 hour per week reading, spelling, other literacy and number (E.g. within school Year One 10 minutes reading per night and 10 minutes per week spelling).
Year Three and Four: 1 hour 30 minutes per week reading, spelling, numbers and topic work.
Year Five and Six: 30 minutes per day reading, spelling, numbers and topic work (again, within school, this will be tailored more to specific subject study for Year Six nearer to SATs tests).
Nursery: The Nursery have home school link books with a recommended activity linked to a current topic for parents/carers to try with the child each week.
Parents and carers are encouraged to:
