This year we will be following a new approach to homework. We hope that this approach will be well suited to our pupils and help them to be the very best that they can be. Outlined below is what our children will be expected to do on a weekly basis. Many of our tasks are web-based and login details will be sent home with your child. If your child does not have access via a computer, games console, tablet, phone etc. then they are welcome to attend homework club which runs on Mondays from 3:20pm – 4:20pm. If this is still an issue, please see your child’s class teacher.
Reading is essential to everyday life and we want to help our pupils to gain a love of reading. Whilst we commit a large part of our weekly timetable in school to developing reading, reading at home can have a huge impact on pupil progress.
We ask that all children complete two sessions on Reading Plus at home. In addition to this, we ask that pupils complete two extra reads per week which are recorded in their reading diaries. Reading does not need to be a traditional novel but could be a newspaper, magazine, online article etc. Children will also bring home a book each week which is appropriate to their reading ability as well as a free choice book.

This will then take the children to different activities that will develop their reading skills. Again, this is a fun and competitive way of developing reading skills which is also a key focus across school this year. We are particularly focusing on reading fluency, developing the pace at which children read.
