In Upper Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1, the tasks sent home will be activities to help parents to support their child's learning. Tasks may include sharing books together, learning new words, phonic words, spellings, number work, times tables, research to support topic work and finishing off work. Homework may take up to 15 minutes each evening. It should be carried out in a supportive environment and should stop when your child gets frustrated or tired.
At Key Stage 2, regular homework supports and reinforces work at school, and can be carried out increasingly independently. Homework is given out at the end of the week (usually Friday) to allow pupils time to complete it over the weekend or early the following week before returning it to school. Homework will usually be concentrating upon literacy, numeracy or topic.
If you have any questions about the homework your child is set, please speak to the class teacher, who will be more than pleased to help support you and your child as they continue learning at home.
