HOME LEARNING EXPECTATIONS
“Homework is an important extension of classroom learning. It helps to cement the ideas that children learn at school, helping concepts to embed and potentially expand their knowledge. The complexity and amount of homework that needs to be carried out obviously increases considerably as children progress through school. The amount of homework given to primary aged children varies, but they are likely to get some on a regular basis. Getting used to doing homework from an early age will definitely be an advantage, as children are more likely to continue doing so as they progress through their school years.” Early Childhood Education Website
At Brackley C of E Junior school the homework expectations are as follows:
Children should read regularly (we recommend 4 times a week). This should be recorded in their reading diary and either brought into school or uploaded to their Class Dojo portfolio.
Children should complete 25 minutes of Times Tables Rock Stars (TTRS) each week to support their consolidation of times tables facts. Each game is a minimum of 1 minute, so they are easily monitored by their class teacher. Paper copies are available upon request.

Each game is a minimum of 1 minute, so they are easily monitored by their class teacher. Paper copies are available upon request. In addition to TTRS, the children will be set 16 arithmetic questions weekly. These will consist of a range of core skills including addition/subtraction; short/long multiplication; short/long division; calculating with fractions, decimals and percentages; ordering numbers; and multiplying/dividing by powers of ten.
We are always delighted to see the children taking their learning outside the classroom! This could be anything from a piece of artwork inspired by an artist we have covered to an exploration of Fair Trade in their local shops. Perhaps something exciting happened to them, and it has inspired them to write a thrilling story! In whatever way our children choose to extend their learning, we would love to see it shared on their Class Dojo portfolio.
