Home Learning

At Cudworth Churchfield Primary, we believe that homework is an important part of the learning process for our children and it is valued as an opportunity for children, parents and teachers to build a shared responsibility for learning. In January 2019 we held a Home Learning Consultation, after considering the results of this survey we have decided to continue with the current homework routine, but remove the 'Project Homework' over holiday periods. 

We cannot stress too highly the importance of regular reading at home; this should be encouraged on a daily basis particularly during holiday periods. Reading is a necessary and enjoyable activity that can be shared as a family.

We strongly encourage parents to get involved in supporting their child’s homework activities. As the child gets older, the amount of independence in completing tasks increases, however parents can still share finished products with their child. Feedback from parents is very important for the child.

Here at Churchfield we strive for excellence therefore we encourage children to present their learning at all times in line with our presentation expectations. This means that the homework should be recorded in pencil, using cursive handwriting and ensuring that the ruler is used to underline and cross out any mistakes.

Our homework expectations for each year group are as follows: 

FS2 KS1 (Y1 & Y2) LKS2 (Y3 & Y4) UKS2 (Y3 & Y4)
