All children are expected to do homework to practise skills taught in the academy, to research topics and to provide a link with parents in knowing about the work being undertaken in the Academy.
The Homework Policy was written in consultation with parents. Years 1 to 6 have a monthly ‘Homework Hints’ which provides useful suggestions on ways to help your child at home.
All children will also have weekly spelling and times tables tests which help them to become secure in skills necessary of the National Curriculum.
Our Superheroes Times Tables Challenge is also something that can be practised regularly at home so children become fluent in recalling key multiplication facts.
We also encourage children to read at home everyday (and have a story read to them!) and ask that an adult signs the green reading diary so class teachers are made aware.
In our Puffins class (Reception), information is given weekly. Reading practice and the application of academic skills in practical situations are vital in supporting children’s learning.
Please support your child at home and ensure homework is completed.
