At Little Stoke we value the contribution that well-pitched homework can make to children’s learning. Our aim is to nurture children who will become lifelong learners; excited about possibilities, challenges to be met and learning yet to be discovered. It is important that children develop a love of learning in all aspects of their life and are able to make links between school work and work they do at home. Although homework expectations will vary depending on the age of the child, successful homework is dependent on the support and encouragement of parents. With already busy family lives, we understand how difficult it can be to build homework into already overcrowded schedule. However, we also know from your comments that you believe the contribution homework makes to children’s learning and attitudes to school to be of enormous value. A little and often can go a long way.
The key to supporting your child’s learning in school is daily homework which supports development of key skills.
- reading their school reading book, a little everyday is best.
- multiplication tables/number bonds using Times Tables Rock Stars
- phonics or spellings practice key learning skills.
