Parents play a vital role in their child’s education and homework is an important part of this progress. We ask parents to oversee the tasks but encourage their children to complete homework tasks on their own. Parents can help their children by providing an environment that allows a child to do their best by giving them a quiet working space, discussing it with them and by visiting the local library or giving access to the internet.
Reading really is the gateway to the wider curriculum and every child is encouraged to read at home each evening from the books provided. Whilst teachers will ensure that home reading books are at the appropriate level, they will use other books and reading material in school each day to teach children to read. Children in the younger year groups will have specific books sent home to share with their parent, at an appropriate level through our Little Wandle Phonics scheme.
