Home Learning

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. As from September 2020, children will complete homework online to minimise worksheets taken to and from school. Staff will go through the expectations in school with the children and send the children's logins home during the first few days. If you need a copy of these, please email your child's class teacher.
