Home learning can have enormous benefits and makes a considerable contribution to pupils’ progress and is important at all stages in a child’s education.
Home learning also fosters positive links between home and school, and allows you, the parents to become actively involved in your child’s learning.
Home learning should enhance your child’s learning and not be an extra burden to pupils or families.
Reception, Yr 1 and Yr 2 children spend about 10 minutes a night on homework or 1 hour a week.
Yr 3 and Yr 4 children spend about 15 – 20 minutes a night or 1 1/2 hours per week.
Yr 5 and Yr 6 children spend about 20 – 30 minutes a night or 2 1/2 hours per week.
All year groups will receive other at least once for each of the seven topics covered through the year.
Each class has a document which highlights what learning is to be completed every week and is available from here.
Children will be encouraged to take a responsible attitude in completing and handing in their homework. It is extremely rewarding when children extend their learning
themselves by researching topics and bringing information into school. This shows that the child has enjoyed their lessons and is fully engaged in the learning process.
