Apple & Cherry Homework

We feel it is important for children to be set engaging homework that gives them opportunities to practice and consolidate the learning that has taken place at school (across a range of subjects). Therefore, in addition to daily reading and spellings, we set termly homework menus for each year group.

The menus offer a choice of homework tasks that can be completed in any order. Children receive a new menu at the beginning of each term. The menu outlines 10 homework tasks that are linked to the learning that will take place over the course of the term. Tasks are to be completed in the children’s homework books. Children will hand their homework books in to their class teacher on a Wednesday, regardless of whether they have completed a task or not. These will be marked and returned by Friday.

By the end of each term, the children will be expected to have completed a minimum of 5 homework tasks of their choosing – this must include 1 English task and 1 Maths task. Children have the opportunity to complete more tasks! Some tasks will have an optional challenge that the children can complete to extend their learning further. The children will receive certificates, based on the amount of tasks they complete in a term, to celebrate their efforts:

Bronze Award = 5 tasks completed

Silver Award = 8 tasks completed

Gold Award = 10 tasks completed

Platinum Award = 10 tasks completed + a minimum of 2 challenges

We greatly appreciate all the support our parents give in encouraging and aiding children with their homework and always look forward to seeing the amazing work they produce.
