From November 2018, the homework system at Northfield Primary School with Communication Resource will change for KS1 and KS2.
All children are expected to read for at least 10 minutes every weekday and spellings and times table work may be sent home. But instead of regular homework worksheets, 'Choice Grids' which allow children and their families to select activities to complete will be sent home termly. Within each half term, children are expected to do at least 3 pieces of work, evidence in their homework book. Details of the system and choices grids are attached below.
Parents are invited to comment in their child’s homework book. We value the support of all parents in a positive home/school partnership.
Homework expectations are in line with recommendations and guidance from the Department for Education. Class teachers are responsible for informing parents of specific timetable arrangements and produce termly information leaflets about topics that are going to be studied.
Please contact the individual class teacher for further guidance and support.
