HOMEWORK

All of our students are encouraged to do some reading and level specific homework in other core curriculum areas every day. It doesn’t have to be much, but each time the learning is revisited in the home it is much more likely to be retained long term.

As a part of our school wide ‘Self Management’ scheme we are working with our students to independently access reading material from their reading boxes or the library and work with their teachers to decide on homework for each week.

If your child is a ‘hungry learner’ and wants more, here are some links to fantastic sites which we encourage:
