Homework teaches children to be independent, to take initiative and responsibility for completing a task, and it helps children to develop a sense of self-discipline. Doing school work at home helps the children to practice working alone without asking for help from their classmates and teachers.
Homework is given out each week on a Wednesday. It is to be returned the following Monday. Homework will usually consist of an assortment of spelling, handwriting, maths, topic, guided reading and writing.
It is expected that children read each and every day and record when they do so in their reading record book. Adults in Otters will check this weekly. House points are awarded each time a child reads outside of school.
As always, if you have any questions regarding homework, please contact me.
