The aim of the homework grid is to exceed their points target.
We have discussed this in class, and the children understand how to select appropriate activities.
Each term or half term, during the first week, your child will be given a homework grid.
The grid contains activities linked to all areas of learning (English, Maths, History, Geography, Science, Art etc).
Each activity has a points value: the values relate to the complexity of the task.
Over the course of the term your child must complete a minimum of 10 activities from the grid.
Your child must complete at least one activity from each row on the grid.
The activities relate directly to work we will be completing in class.
We know that homework is beneficial to both children and parents, but sometimes children find homework ‘boring’, ‘a waste of time’ and ‘pointless’.
To ensure work is consolidated and extended at home we are going to think about homework a little more creatively.
