The children have been working hard on their #30things challenges
We are commited to developing the skills, knowledge, experiences and attitudes of our children through a strong partnership between home and school. We want to unlock potential whilst providing opportunities for you children to grow.
Why homework at HCPS?
- Enable children to make maximum progress in their academic development;
- Individual homework encourages children to develop confidence and self-discipline to study on their own and prepares them as independent learners;
- Develop skills and understanding, particularly in English and Maths, revising consolidating and reinforcing through additional paractice at home;
- Promote co-operation between home and school and strengthen the partnership to help all children succeed.
What homework will be given?
To enable children to unlock their potential and grow, homework will be split into two parts;The key 3' (unlock potential) and #30things (opportunities to grow).
- 3 Non-negotiable activities will be given each week linked to:
Reading at home,
- Children will also be aiming to complete the whole-school #30things challenge. Each term they will be given an activities sheet, wich will be stuck in their learning journals.
We aim to comply with the recommended time allocations for homework i.e.
- Years 1&2 1 hour per week (10-15 mins each day)
- Years 3&4 1.5 hours per week (15-20 mins each day)
- Years 5&6 30 mins per day
Our Homework system will be reviewed by a Homework working-group before the Christmas holidays. The group will consist of Parents, Staff, Governors and Children. From this, all stakeholders will also have the opportunity to give ideas for the Spring and Summer Term #30things challenge.
