Homework  - Early Years

  • In Reception, weekly maths booklet will continue to be set on a Monday and will be tested the following week
  • In Nursery, a number booklet will be set on a Friday and will be texted every two weeks
  • Curriculum homework will be set on a fortnightly basis, it will be given on a Monday and will be due in, a week on Wednesday (9 days later). Once homework is submitted on the Wednesday, it will be marked by staff showing areas of strength and next steps. These targets can then directly feed into the next task set the following Monday
  • Task sheets will be provided in the book to support parents when helping their child with the requirements of the task
  • In addition to this, children are still expected to read regularly and learn their key words and sounds / spellings at home.

We expect children to take pride in the presentation of their homework, as they do their work in school. Work should always be completed in pencil and a ruler should be used to underline dates and title, or to draw straight lines. 

The most crucial aspect of this system for home learning is that teacher’s feedback and advice moves the children’s learning forward. We expect children to read and act upon advice that they are given. They may need parental support to do this. After marking each piece of homework, teachers will set individual ‘next steps’ for each child to concentrate on in their next piece of work. It is expected that the child and parent will ensure that these ‘next steps’ are met in the subsequent piece of homework. 

If you have any questions about a piece of homework, please come in and speak to us. We are happy to help and support you where needed.


After your child has completed their homework, they must complete their pupil comment at home (parents can write this for them). Discuss with them their next steps from the previous week. Pupil and parental comments are also very helpful for us – they inform us about how much support a child has needed with a piece of work and what elements they found easy or hard. You can also tell us how long they spent on their homework.
