Homework at Holy Family
Children at Holy Family have regular homework. This will include reading each night, spellings, number bonds and times tables to learn. In addition to this, children and parents work together on a creative project each term. This might be a model, a poster, artwork, a Powerpoint or a blog.
Parents and children were asked to reflect on the new homework projects.
Results of the parent and children's questionnaires:
78% of children love them and 69% of parents.
"The projects are interesting for both me as a parent and for my son."
" We are really enjoying doing it together, spending some time together."
"It is a great time together, lots of fun, sharing experiences and memories."
"Love them, much more scope to learn things especially as a family."
"The homework projects help our son explore things."
"My daughter is more excited about the subject she works on beacuse of the creative homework projects."
Here are some examples of last term's homework projects.
