At Caedmon Primary School, we recognise that life-long learning takes place in all aspects of people’s lives – not just in the classroom. For the children in our school, learning at home is believed to be an essential part of a good education.
Purposes of Homework
Homework is important because it provides a means for our children:
- to consolidate and reinforce what is learnt in the classroom;
- to build up basic skills;
- to become curious and independent learners;
- to develop good study habits; and
- to prepare for the next stage of education.
All pupils from Y1 to Y6 are expected to:
- Read at home each night.
- Learn their weekly spellings.
- Learn the times table/number bonds for that week.
In all year groups, pupils are set a series of challenges at the start of each term which are linked to their topic.
