Homework can be a fantastic way to consolidate understanding, develop skills taught in lesson and gives children opportunities to work independently.
At St Luke’s we offer weekly homework set by the class teacher. This homework will be set as a message every Monday on Microsoft Teams and will look like the image below.
There will be 4 types of activity that your child can complete –
Must Do - These are the activities that we expect all children to complete each week.
Should Do – These activities will greatly help children with their schoolwork if they are completed, but are optional.
Could Do - These activities, usually linked to afternoon lessons such as Art, History or PE, are entirely optional but will be fun and educational!
Spellings – These are set weekly and are a MUST DO as your child will be tested on them in school.
Some homework is to be completed in the purple Home Learning Journey book. This book will also contain Knowledge Organisers which have additional activities for your child to complete linked to the topics being taught in school.
Some homework is online and will require students to log in and complete tasks on different websites. This can be done on laptops, tablets or even smartphones. Teachers regularly set and check this work online. All passwords will be provided by the class teacher.
The links below are all of the different websites, programs and resources our school has subscribed to which your children have access to.
If a child does not have access to a laptop and / or the internet, the school will do all it can to support children. There will be weekly ‘homework clubs’ in each phase so that pupils can complete work using school devices. In some instances, the school may also be able to loan out equipment. Please speak to Mrs Grennan for more information about this.
Although we hope that the majority of our children will have an uninterrupted learning experience this year, there is the possibility that an individual child or even a class/year group bubble will need to self-isolate for a period of time.
In the event of this happening, the staff have worked tirelessly in ensuring that if your child has to undertake their learning from home, that their learning continues.
A plan for remote learning so that all children can continue with their education. This meets the expectations set out in the DfE guidance ‘Remote Education Support’.
