The way in which children carry out homework at Windmill changed from September 2014. A termly homework grid will be shared in Home Learning Books given out at the beginning of each term. The grid will detail homework tasks focusing on English, Maths or Theme subject tasks. Children will need to choose and complete one task a week from the grid and points will be awarded depending on the challenge of the task they have chosen; the points for each task will be indicated on the grid. Over the term children will accrue points to be exchanged for rewards at the end of the term.
Homework books need to be returned to school every Monday morning for sharing and then books will be returned on Thursdays.
The new homework tasks will encourage independence as children can choose which tasks they complete. Children will be able to choose a task that interests them and hopefully become more engaged with the whole process of home learning. Please support your child to complete home learning tasks to the best of their ability and share the experience with them each week.
Children in Reception will receive a slightly adapted Home Learning Grid with suggestions of activities to complete at home to support their early learning. They will also bring home picture books, story sacks and other activities for you to share.
If you would like to discuss any of the tasks on the grids please contact your child’s Class Teacher.
