At Woodlands Primary Academy homework is set by class teachers and sent out either half termly or weekly. Children will receive a list of home learning challenges to complete with their families. They will always be linked to the topic children are working on in class and will include a range of activities. Examples might include designing a poster, writing a leaflet or creating a model. You might be challenged to visit somewhere new or to interview family and friends on a specific topic. These learning challenges are a great way to get all the family involved. In addition to half termly challenges, all children are sent home with year group specific spellings to learn each week. Reading should happen every night and parents are asked to sign children’s reading records when they have read at home.
