Year 5 Homework Learning Support
Homework at Key Stage 2 (Years 5 and 6) will be limited to the two Core Subjects and total a maximum of 1½ hours per week. Core subjects are English (to include daily reading) and Maths. Some Science will be set when it is relevant and appropriate.
Teachers in KS2 are expected to ensure that homework is properly recorded in planners by pupils as they learn to organise themselves. Homework should be set at the beginning of the lesson in order for it to be given time to be checked by the teacher to ensure that it has been correctly written in. Parents/Carers are requested to check planners regularly, to ensure tasks etc. have been completed. Form Tutors and Curriculum Team members will monitor planners.
Learning Journey: Non-core homework will take the form of projects e.g. 3D modelling, research, writing task. A homework summary will be provided by the teacher at the beginning of each half term. Hand in dates will be detailed on the summary. The department issuing the homework will be expected to give further guidance to students to enable them to break the tasks into smaller parts.
