Children are set regular homework which includes reading, learning multiplication tables and a variety of tasks linked to all areas of the curriculum. We consider home learning to be an opportunity for the children to consolidate their learning from school and we ensure that homework is accessible for all children. In Y5 & 6 we encourage the children to become independent learners because we understand the importance of preparing them for the transition to secondary school. To this end there is an increase in the amount of homework and the responsibility for completing and handing homework in on time moves to the child.
