Homework

Homework is anything that a child does outside the normal school day that contributes to their learning in response to guidance from the school. Homework encompasses a whole variety of activities instigated by teachers and parents to support children’s learning. 

It is essentially used to consolidate and reinforce learning done in school and to allow children to practice skills taught at school. For example, a parent who spends time reading a story to their child before bedtime is helping with homework. From nursery your child will be encouraged to bring home books to share with you. Homework plays an important role in raising a child’s level of attainment. We also acknowledge the importance of play and free time in a child’s development so whilst homework is important; it should not prevent children from taking part in the whole range of after school clubs and organisations that play an important part in the lives of so many children.
