Learning at home is an important part of making sure that home and school are a team! Regular homework is important as it gives our pupils opportunities to practise at home the tasks covered in class and helps the pupils work towards improving important skills. It also helps children and young people become confident and independent in their learning, which will help throughout their time at school and adult life.
At Dringhouses Primary School, our homework focuses around practising the key skills that are essential for success across the curriculum. This includes regular reading practise and multiplication fact practise.
Our homework offer is provided in our Homework Policy and is shared with parents/carers regularly. If our families need any support with how best to support their children with homework, please contact your child’s class teacher; we are more than happy to help.
Parents and carers should endeavour to:
-Provide a reasonably quiet, suitable place for their child to do his/her homework (with adult support when appropriate).
-Make it clear to their child that they value homework, and check that it is carried out regularly.
-Be prepared to spend time reading with their child, particularly in the early years.
-Encourage their child to explain the activity to them.
-Let their child take the lead; he/she will learn more that way.
-Give their child lots of time to think.
-Help and support their child to do his/her homework and give praise when it is done.
-Keep the teacher informed if tasks are taking too long or circumstances have meant that homework could not be completed.
-Become actively involved in joint activities with their child – and have fun together!

We had a visit from Jez and Paulette from Google today who were very impressed with our knowledge about e-safety. We brushed up on our skills for keeping ourselves safe and reminded ourselves of the Be Internet Legends Pledge!
