Reading and Phonics Websites:
At Middle Park we consider homework to be an important aspect of our children’s education. It provides opportunities for parents, children and the school to work in partnership. As children mature it encourages independence and organisation.
Throughout their school lives children will benefit from the time, love, interest and encouragement given from home. From sharing books and rhymes, playing games and reading to completing reinforcing activities, projects and posters.
This consolidation and extension will enhance their learning and prepare them for the next steps in their education.
“My favourite piece of homework was when we had to do a project about a famous musician and I chose Bob Marley because my Dad loves him. I learned all about where he came from and me and my Mum drew a wicked picture of him. He’s one of my favourites now.” Year 5 pupil
All children are expected to complete homework set by their class teacher. This varies from year to year.
Homework consists of daily reading with an adult. The children are encouraged to return book bags daily. Reading Record books are completed to show that a child has read at home.
Other homework sent on a Friday may be spellings, literacy or numeracy activities.
Homework will be given on a Friday to be returned by the following Wednesday. Children should read every day and have a reading record book to evidence this.
In Year 6 homework is given out daily. Year 6 children are regularly consulted about the content of homework to ensure we are meeting their interests and learning needs.
Homework consists of reading, language and maths games.
The most important aspect of home learning is reading. This can be your child reading to you or you reading to your child. Please make undisturbed time for this every day. Enjoy reading together!
