Home learning should support our pupils’ excitement for learning and encourage them to become increasingly self-motivated and independent learners. It must be planned so that pupils rehearse, practise and consolidate what they have learned at school and help parents support and engage with their child’s learning.
Homework at Christ the Saviour emphasises daily reading with an adult, which is recorded in children’s red reading diaries. Red reading diaries and reading books should be brought into school every day. In addition, pupils are asked to learn their weekly spellings and number facts. Parents are encouraged to use the knowledge organisers on their child’s year group page to engage children at home in discussions about what they are learning in subjects such as history, geography and R.E. In KS2 pupils complete bi-weekly science homework to develop their independent learning and their practical and investigative skills.
Details of the home learning expectations for each year group and the days on which homework is due can be found on your child’s year group page.
