Homework

Rationale
We at North Road Community Primary School believe that children should be encouraged to develop their independent learning skills at home as well as at school.

Why is homework important?

  • It raises your children’s achievement
  • It consolidates and extends the work they have done in school
  • It helps to inform you about your children’s school work and allows and gives you the opportunity to support this work
  • It is a valuable life skill and develops good work habits for secondary school and future employment.

Guidelines 
All children in North Road Community Primary School are expected to read at home daily to an adult who must sign their reading record. In addition work will be sent home as follows:

Foundation Stage:

  • Key words.
  • Letter formation.

KS1 :

  • Key words.
  • Weekly English and maths work
  • Phonics / spellings
  • Times table / related division fact practise

Years 3-5:

  • Termly topic work project
  • Weekly English and maths work

  • Times table / related division fact practise

Year 6:

  • Times table / related division fact practise
  • SATs revision.

 

Additional work might be sent home if a child is on an additional intervention or needs some short term support with a specific area of the curriculum. Teachers will contact you directly to let you know how best to support in this situation.
