We believe homework makes an important contribution to children’s progress at the Academy. It enables children to share their experiences at the Academy with parents and allows them to bring their experiences from outside the Academy, into the classroom. It also helps children to become more confident and independent in their learning, which will help throughout both Academy and Adult life.
Early Years – Reception:
Parents are encouraged to share stories and read books daily that have been specifically chosen for their child. Termly magical tasks are used to develop skills relating to early learning goals and enable parents to find out about new learning.
Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2:
Children receive a homework letter in the first week of every term that explains the tasks they have been set to complete in their ‘Brain Builder’ book.
Children are also encouraged to:
- Read daily
- Practice their spellings
- Develop their recall of their times tables
