We accept that not every activity will capture children and parents’ imagination and that weekends can sometimes be busy. We believe that homework should be enjoyable and manageable for all concerned and that if it becomes a chore/burden/source of conflict it ceases to be a constructive aspect of teaching and learning.
We do not specify amounts of time that must be spent on each task, preferring individual children and families to set their own routines. Individual teachers are always happy to give advice.
We hope that the children are motivated by positive incentives and by the tasks themselves. There will be no consequences if they fail to complete the work. However discreet homework registers are kept and if a child consistently fails to complete and return tasks, this is discussed with the child and their parents.
Children’s homework will be set on Google Classroom. We also direct children to external apps and websites for example –Times-Table Rockstars.
