Homework will be a regular feature of our class activities throughout most of the year.
Even though homework is not a compulsory activity, it is strongly advised that students participate in regular out-of-school activities which consolidate skills and develop a self-motivated work ethic that is vital for success in high school and future work pathways.
Homework will be usually sent home each Monday and to be returned by the following Friday, unless the homework is set over a period of 2 weeks. Even though reading and times table recall are not presented as formal homework tasks, it is recommended that your child reads for extended periods of time and practice their times tables each night.
If you do not have an internet connection or working device at home, please ask your child to tell me and I will give them time to log on
at school in place of another activity so that they can still give this activity a go.
Whilst I encourage students to complete their homework independently, if your child is having difficulty with homework tasks or if you have concerns, please discuss this with me ASAP. Homework should be a consolidation of their learning and not a source of family upset and argument each week. If it's not working for you - please let me know.
