At Barnburgh we view homework as being a supported or independent task undertaken outside of curriculum time which reinforces, extends or enriches current learning.
The purpose of homework at Barnburgh is to provide opportunities for parents to be involved in their child’s learning. It enables children to practise and consolidate skills and aims, to broaden the context of learning and provide enrichment and extension. Finally, it aims to enable children to take responsibility for their own learning, to become independent learners and to develop perseverance.
We recognise that many families welcome feedback on homework tasks. We do this through a 3 star approach. We expect every child to receive 2 stars for each task. that is set. Occasionally children do more than the expected amount of homework. We will acknowledge this by awarding 3 stars. Sometimes children do not complete their homework. This will be acknowledged by not awarding a star and where children have completed some homework but it does not meet our expectations we set, a child will receive just 1 star. Teachers will keep a class log of stars and will arrange to meet with you if they have any concerns. The sheet will also identify any spellings that your child gets wrong in the test. We will be very grateful of your support to re-learn these.
