Parent Forums

On Friday 23rd of February, we held a parent forum to discuss homework.

The information collected was invaluable and many actions have been implemented with regards to homework. See below for the huge impact you had!

You said… We have…
Our children sometimes find homework tricky to understand. Homework is now skills based, focussing on the core knowledge the children need to learn.
You are sometimes unsure of the methods and terminology needed to help our children. We are currently creating homework support booklets for the children to use. This will include mathematical methods and English vocabulary. These will be added to the website when complete.
The children are unsure what to do when they are stuck. Homework club has started, so please encourage your children to take their homework to Sellwood class each Tuesday lunchtime.
You were happy with the amount of core homework given but sometimes project homework is too much. Project homework is now optional where children can earn CLICs for completing tasks.
Some children see reading and times tables as optional. Directed reading and times tables homework is now given. Practice sites are on the website.
Some children are worried if they forget their homework. All classes are given the same consequences for not completing homework. (They will have one chance to hand it in the following day, if this doesn’t happen, it will need to be completed at break time).

On Thursday 2nd March at 9am, we held a parents forum focussing on Reading. The discussions included:

  • Information about the best strategies to help your child with reading at home
  • Suggested reading books for your child that are age appropriate
  • Information about how the school is promoting pleasure for reading
  • Sharing your ideas for creating enthusiasm for reading at home
  • Sharing your ideas for creating enthusiasm for reading in school
