Here at Eaton Park Academy, we have a homework system that is designed to maximise impact on the children’s learning and progression whilst at the same time providing enjoyable tasks to complete as a family. We believe that our homework system provides the children with the opportunity to continue to learn and practise their basic skills, as well as taking into account the importance of family time.

On a Monday, children are issued with spellings to practise at home ready for a test on the following Monday. In addition to this, they will receive apiece of maths homework to complete on a Monday and handed in on a Friday.  Children are rewarded for their homework efforts and success.

It is an expectation at Eaton Park that all children read at least three times a week at home. This helps to develop and support the reading skills delivered in school. Every time a child returns their reading diary, which has been signed to say they have read, it’ll be acknowledged. At the end of each half term, any children who have read 5 times each week will be put in the bookworm draw, where they have the chance to earn a brand new book from our vending machine.

The children are also expected to use our electronic resources at least once a week, which include Spelling Shed, Bug Club and TT Rockstars. Again, all of these resources help to further deepen the children’s learning that is taking place within the classroom.

We have an exciting approach to topic homework. Topic homework is sent out to children at the beginning of each topic. The children are all given a topic book to take home which contains a task sheet. The task sheet provides the children with a choice of four different activities to complete, related to their topic. The children are be able to choose two out of the four tasks to complete. This system enables the children to be more creative whilst providing more freedom when completing the homework. It also provides tasks which enable the children to work with and communicate with their family members to complete tasks and challenges together. The topic homework has to be returned at the end of each topic so that it can be shared, celebrated and rewarded in school.

We ask that you encourage and support your child when completing their homework tasks because they do contribute to their learning within school. We also ask that you sign your child’s planner each time they read at home. Thank you.

The children’s participation with homework tasks is closely monitored by the class teacher and homework lead, ensuring any children who are not completing their homework are spoken to so that help can provided in school if and when needed.
