Homework

Background:

Parents at Oasis Academy Connaught are very supportive of their children’s learning and want them to do well. As such some parents like to support their children with home learning and the Academy offers the opportunity to do this. Home learning should not cause undue stress to families or staff.

Our aims of providing home learning are to:

  • Ensure progression towards independence and an individual responsibility
  • Improve the quality of learning experiences offered to the children
  • Extend and support learning  
  • Provide opportunities for children and parents to share learning experiences  
  • Prepare Year Six children for the secondary phase of education

 The table below gives the agreed home learning available for children.

For children to make the most progress reading, spelling and multiplication/division facts need to be practised regularly.  

Homework will:

  • Increase as children get older
  • Be interesting and relevant to the class work
  • Be encouraged by a positive approach
  • Encourage parents to support their children’s work by providing where possible a quiet undisturbed environment

Following these guidelines will help children to develop independence, realise their full potential and prepare them for the next stage in their education.
