- To help to develop an effective partnership between school and parents
- To extend school learning and to reinforce skills and understanding
- To encourage pupils, as they get older, to develop the confidence and self-discipline to study on their own
Homework should be planned to complement the work children are doing in the classroom and be appropriate for the age and ability of the pupils.
Teachers should try to maintain a regular weekly homework routine, and the work should not take pupils more than one hour a week to complete.
All pupils should have a homework book, and a reading diary, through which we hope to develop effective communications between parent, pupils and teachers.
Home reading sessions should take about twenty minutes per night. As the child becomes fluent in reading these sessions should take the form of silent reading sessions.
Parents reading stories to children and children reading out signs and labels are also useful ways to help the development of reading skills.
Parents or pupils (depending on the age of the child) are asked to record brief details of reading progress in the reading record book.
