Homework

"This session has given me much more confidence to help my son with his homework."

Parent

We believe that children learn best when home and school work in partnership.

Children are given weekly homework with the expectation that tasks will be completed by the deadline given.

Homework provides a valuable opportunity to consolidate classroom learning. Please support your child with their homework by: discussing their tasks and allowing time and a quiet space for them to undertake it. Do not hesitate to ask your child’s teacher if you require further advice.

Homework includes:

  • Reading at least three times per week and maintaining a basic home reading record.
  • Weekly English and mathematics activities.
  • BVS Core Knowledge - tests, quizzes and questions.
  • Occasional research activities.

A home-school planner is provided to communicate homework specifics and to record completion. These are monitored by your child’s class teacher on a weekly basis.
