Homework

 

At Burford, we believe that small amounts of regular homework is invaluable in helping children develop new skills and to practise existing ones. I have set out below general expectations for each key stage.

 

Early Years Foundation Stage

 

In EYFS, we know that the biggest thing you can do to help your child is to read with them regularly. We recommend at least three times a week. When your child is in F2, they will also be asked to learn to spell some common, high frequency words. We call these 'Bear Words'.

 

Key Stage 1

 

As with EYFS, the most important homework is reading. We again recommend at least three times a week. It is a big help to us if this is recorded in your child's reading diary. Your child will also be expected to learn some spellings each week. In Year 2, children are also given one piece of either maths or English homework to complete.

 

Key Stage 2

 

At the risk of repeating myself, reading remains the most important homework and the expectation of at least three times a week remains the same. As well as that, your child will be expected to learn weekly spellings and certain times tables. They will also receive a weekly piece of homework. More often than not, this will be either be maths or English but may also be topic based on occasion.
