PATHS – Parents and Teachers Home support.
At AAESS we feel homework is important and sets good working
habits. We want to make sure it is valuable, flexible,
creative and fun. Our homework tasks are directly linked to
the needs of the children and build on previous knowledge.
We use various homework strategies; for example parental
support and guidance, joint family learning tasks and
independent learning. Homework will not always take the form
of recorded work.
In Key Stage 1, we will outline what has been happening in
class and then give suggestions for practical activities
rather than recorded. We will draw on the internet to give
further learning opportunities.
Suggested homework times (4 times a week) -
Reception – 10 minutes per night reading
Year 1 – 10 minutes reading per night and 10 minutes other
Year 2 – 10 minutes reading per night and 15 minutes other
In Key Stage 2, we will outline what has been happening in
class, share examples of practical activities, draw on the
internet to give further learning opportunities and support
this learning with recorded work where we feel it is
appropriate. We aim to give a varied homework diet with a
strong mix of simple oral activities, investigative work and
scaffolded recorded tasks.
