Homework

We have an expectation that all homework is to be completed by our pupils.

Homework is used to consolidate learning from the school day and support further learning opportunities.

Each pupil will receive at least 2 pieces of homework a week. This will come out on a Friday and needs to be handed in on a Wednesday. Any child that doesn’t complete their homework will be supported during Wednesday lunchtime by the senior team to complete and stay up to date. 

Reading is crucial for your children and we have an expectation that your child will read at least 4 times a week. Your child will have a reading record that we would like you to sign. If your child is in Bridges they will be available to support their reading.

Value Based Homework Projects. Each term an additional optional homework challenge will be set. These will allow our pupils to interpret our termly value and be creative and innovative. The homework will be handed in at the hall in the last week of term and winning pieces will be displayed and celebrated around the school for the following term.

We endeavour to make our curriculum innovative and exciting matching the needs of our pupils. We have embraced the new national curriculum. Below is information of some of the key curriculum areas.

Each term parents will be informed of their children’s learning journey through their curriculum newsletter and a curriculum map that will be available through the website and reception display.

Religious Education:  We follow the Oxfordshire Agreed Syllabus. Children will learn about the different major faiths and will be encouraged to be enquiring learners through the syllabus.  If you wish to withdraw your child from RE please contact your class teacher.

Physical Education – The school offers two sessions a week for PE. Each child in KS1 and KS2 will also experience swimming for a term. The school’s sports premium money is invested in a qualified PE teacher and further resourcing. The policy statement can be found on the website.
