Homework

At Wellington Primary School we believe that involving parents in the education of their children is a vital element in promoting successful learning. We therefore seek to offer ongoing opportunities for parents to work with their children at home.

Objectives

  • To promote communication between school and home
  • To enrich children’s learning and experiences
  • To consolidate learning
  • To provide opportunities for independent learning

Guidelines

  • Half termly curriculum plans should be sent home
  • Books for sharing / reading with parents should be taken home daily with the child’s reading diary ( introduced into Reception classes from start of Spring term)
  • Spellings should be taken home at least fortnightly (Year 1 – Year 6 )
  • Children in years 3, 4, 5 and 6 should be given weekly homework in English and Maths
