Homework Guidelines 2018-2019

Homework is issued every week to provide children with the opportunity to consolidate and apply the skills they have learnt in school. Through our home-school agreement, parents have agreed to support children with their homework and any other home learning opportunities.

 

Homework is issued by class teachers every Wednesday and should be returned by the following Monday. Please note that homework that is late will not be marked.

 

The children receive the following homework each week:

Reading at home

Children are encouraged to read regularly to improve their fluency and understanding of texts. All children in the school have a home reading book which is changed every week or once the children have completed the text. Reading at home is an opportunity for children and parents to share a love reading as well as spending time to discuss the text. Parents and children should ask questions about the text, promoting the children to think more deeply about what they are reading. A summary of the shared reading session should be recorded in the child’s reading journal for the teacher to read.

If you have any concerns regarding homework or would like to know more about how you can further support your child, please do not hesitate to ask the class teacher.
