All teachers set homework tasks most days but no child should need to spend more than 30 minutes completing this and generally, the time needed will be considerably less. Tasks set may include reading, especially in the early stages, practice of number and maths work, spelling, practical tasks, etc. – the tasks will be linked to work covered in class and should be able to be completed by the child working independently. All children are given a homework diary in which the children or teacher will note the work to be done each day. Parents are asked to sign when the work has been completed and make any comments in the space provided. Where a homework task is issued which requires specific resources e.g. access to a computer, craft materials etc. please contact the class teacher if you would like support.
