Homework Approach

Our Vision

Love

We love and nurture every individual.

Learn

We are passionate about inspiring learning.

 Thrive

We value the uniqueness of each individual’s achievements.

Our approach to homework is to encourage a love of learning, provide opportunities for children to be individually nurtured valuing their interests and skills. There is a clear and strong focus on using homework to further inspire learning encouraging independence and creativity. We aspire for each child to be able to self-direct and self-motivate with the support and guidance of the adults around them.

 

Homework Practices

We welcome and encourage children to continue their learning beyond school and share the results with us. The curriculum learning overview for each class outlines key themes and topics for the term ahead.

We have consciously decided to not ‘publish’ or ‘set’ homework tasks or sheets so as to not restrict children’s creativity and to avoid these becoming a list to work though.

Instead, we encourage children to further their learning using the topics from class and follow their own personal interests. Children can work at their own personal pace and fit their homework around other hobbies, clubs and interests. We are happy to see and celebrate work produced at home throughout each term.

Based on our experience, the following are examples of ways children typically like to extend and continue their learning. It is not an exhaustive or prescriptive list.

  • Find out more about one of the subjects or topics currently being studied.
  • Write to an ‘expert’ on the subject with their questions.
  • Make a poster to summarise what they have learnt.
  • Create drawings, models and sculptures related to their learning.
  • Visit a place of interest linked to their learning in person or virtually.

The children themselves will be able to explain and describe what they would like to do and how they would like to do it.
