Homework at Norwood Green provides a means by which parents & carers can actively take part in their child’s learning. We see homework as anything that a child does outside of school which contributes to their learning.
Regular and well planned homework should:
- Help parents gain insight into their child’s school work and promote a partnership between home and school
- Provide opportunities for the pupils to develop confidence and discipline for independent learning
- Consolidate and reinforce skills learnt in school; particularly in literacy and mathematics
Due to the current situation and government guidelines for schools, our homework will look slightly different this year:
All children at Norwood Green are encouraged and supported to learn to read. For homework we will be using an online reading program called 'Bug Club'. This is a literacy program designed to support the effective and engaging teaching of reading for primary students. See our 'Bug Club' page for more information.
We have also registered with a new online Maths programme to support your children's learning at home. Each week your child will now be allocated Maths homework on 'My Maths'. My Maths is an interactive online teaching and homework site that builds pupil engagement and consolidates Math knowledge.
All of our children will also have access to ‘Education City’. This is an interactive site with Games and activities that help reinforce key math, language, and science concepts for school aged children.
Alongside these programmes, the class teacher may also send home other key activities for your child to work on but again this will be done remotely. The teachers will track homework and discuss this with you when appropriate.
We hope you will spend some time with your child, sharing the homework experience and supporting them to complete their homework if necessary. Please look at the activity wheel below, which you and child can do together.
