Homework, suited to the children’s age and attention span, may be set on a class basis, usually in support of a class project. Homework may also be given on a regular basis at an appropriate level for the child’s age and stage of development. All children have reading books and may also have supplementary work to take home on a regular basis. Spellings or tables may also be required to be practised as the class teacher requests. The numeracy strategy also encourages homework for certain modules. At Key Stage 2, junior children may be required to do some research or complete written tasks, and work unfinished in school may be sent home as homework. In such cases we look for the support of parents in ensuring that the work is completed to a satisfactory standard.
