Homework Guidance

Monday 24th February 2020

Dear parents and carers,

 

After a successful meeting with parent representatives regarding homework, we have created a pilot scheme to trial starting on Monday 24th February.

 

The group discussed at length, past and current homework schemes used at Cadmore and looked at examples from other schools. We also considered homework expectations in a grammar and secondary school.

 

We have created a scheme that has incorporated formal and informal elements of homework and set a timeframe that enables quality family time. Before we break up for Easter, I will be sending out a questionnaire and will meet again with the parent representatives. I encourage you to chat to the representatives about how the homework is going. Just to remind you, our representatives are Mrs Puleston (Harry yr4 and Abby yr5), Mrs Smart (Zac yr 3 and Noah yr1) and Mrs Sharp (Georgia yr5).

Homework structure:

Class 4

Year 6 - Daily reading; weekly spellings; weekly set English and maths tasks

Year 5 - Daily reading; weekly spellings; weekly online Mathletics activities; fortnightly written task

Class 3 - Daily reading; weekly spellings; weekly online Mathletics activities; fortnightly creative activity or written task

Class 2 – Daily reading; weekly spellings; weekly online Mathletics activities; fortnightly chosen activity

Class 1 – Daily reading; weekly ‘To and Fro’ activities.

 

Classes 2-4:

In the front of your child’s homework book, there will be a list of dates for when the homework will be set and when it needs to be returned.

For the fortnightly task, your child will be given details about the task. When they have finished, there will be 3 comment boxes for the parent/adult, child and class teacher to complete.

Thank you for your support

Mrs Groom
