Information for Parents
Children, parents and teachers working together is a priority for all children in the school to ensure the best possible outcomes.
Homework is an essential part of pupils’ learning. In line with National Curriculum requirements. Children are encouraged to establish good homework habits from the beginning of their school life.
Read the details here or watch the video to hear from Mrs Johnson who will also explain how you can help your child.
Guide to homework
Children will bring home reading books every day. Please ensure these are returned when requested. In addition, children will be given tasks to support learning in English and numeracy lessons, and occasionally to extend learning in other subject areas.
Homework tasks will depend on the age and ability of children, but in general terms the following can be expected:
Key Stage 2 (Year 3, 4, 5 and 6)
Daily reading books will be changed as appropriate. Children have access to other books and can change these when they want to as well as a weekly Library book.
Weekly differentiated spellings based on common exception words and taught spelling rules for each year group. These will be set on Friday and tested the following week on Friday.
A weekly English task, which can be related to reading comprehension, grammar and punctuation and questions related to a text.
A weekly mental Maths worksheet or tasks related to Maths topic work.
Times Table Rockstars (computer based tasks for times tables)
Spelling Shed (computer based tasks to improve spellings)
As children progress towards Year 6 they may often be given additional activities including SATs revision. Parents should encourage greater independence as children move into upper Key Stage 2.
All home learning is submitted via Google Classroom, which will be looked at by your child’s class teacher.
Our class structure has three clear priorities:
Deliver excellent teaching
Meet the learning needs of the children
Provide a stimulating curriculum that challenges and excites!
Woolton Hill Junior School is strongly equipped to teach children across mixed aged classes, with teachers planning lessons that enable them to differentiate the work carefully to each individual, regardless of age. This is the practice today as well as in many other schools around the country and will continue next year.
