Homework

At Thackley Primary School we believe that all homework should reinforce and support the learning which takes place in school. There are different expectations for children throughout the primary phase and parents will be informed every year of the homework to be set in each year group. Examples of homework tasks may include:
  • Home reading
  • Mental arithmetic skills including Times Tables
  • Spelling activities
  • Research tasks related to topic
  • Revising key information from Knowledge Organisers
We greatly value parental interest and support with your child’s learning, especially when it comes to helping your child to read. Home reading has a high priority in our school and the reward systems we have in place support this. During Reception and Key Stage One, children will bring home weekly words to learn which are vital to the early stages in reading.
