Hanborough Manor CE Primary School
Each week homework is given out on a Wednesday and collected in the following Monday.
We have reviewed our homework so that there is a focus on reading, learning spellings and times tables. We feel that these are the three key activities that parents and carers do with their children to enable them to access the curriculum and make progress.
We are also offering ‘optional’ homework for children that wish to do more. These change each term and are created to encourage some independent learning, link with national events or initiatives and give children some different ideas of experiences that they can do to enhance their understanding of the world.
Here is an example of some of the optional activities that the children can do.
We do encourage children to share what they have done by sending in photos or uploading photos or work to Google Classroom.
