Homework at Pirton Hill

Homework is given to pupils at Pirton Hill to support and embed the knowledge, skills and language children have developed in school and to allow parents and carers to play an active role in their child’s learning.

 

The aim of homework at Pirton Hill Primary School is to:

  • Create lots of opportunity to practice reading so that children can become fluent, confident and independent readers
  • Provide opportunity for pupils to practice and learn to recall key facts that facilitate deep learning such as timetables, spellings and key information
  • Develop fluent and fluid handwriting for all pupils; 
  • Give parents and carers a chance to engage with the type of learning that their child is doing at school
  • Enable children who have missed out on learning through poor behaviour choices to catch up on missed learning
