At Stanbridge Lower School regular homework is set for all pupils to reinforce and extend that which is learnt in school, particularly in Literacy and Numeracy.
A relevant amount of homework is set for each year group focusing on reading, phonics and spelling, maths and the learning of times tables. We do not test spellings for children as we feel this makes spelling too restrictive and takes spelling away from the context of writing. Please read our homework policy.
We believe that homework should also foster creativity and enjoyment of the curriculum and involve families having fun together. This is provided in the form of Take Away Tasks.
Reception: phonics homework books
Yr1/2: reading, phonic homework books (links to spelling), maths, learning of times tables
