Homework  - Early Years

  • In Reception and Nursery curriculum homework will be set via Evidence Me 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 via the Evidence Me App on or before  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.
  • Tasks will be set and support and ideas given to parents for helping their child with the requirements of the task
  • In addition to this, children are still expected to read regularly and  work on applying their phonic sounds at home.
  • Work can be submitted in a number of ways, it might be a photograph (of artwork, a model or written work) or a video of a child completing the task - singing, reading, acting, explaining or role play for example.

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.


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.

Homework  – Key Stage 1


From September 2020, we will set homework online using Seesaw. Children will have maths and English homework books sent home and are expected to use these to complete their homework or to complete the online task set. They should then take a photo or screenshot of their work and submit it via Seesaw. Staff will then comment on children's homework online.

  • Weekly maths homework will be set on a Friday and will be due in the following Wednesday. 
  • Curriculum/English 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). 
  • Task sheets may be suggested  to support parents when helping their child with the requirements of the task
  • In addition to this, children are still expected to practise number skills, read regularly and complete spelling homework (this will form part of English homework) at home. 

We expect children to take pride in the presentation of their homework, as they do their work in school. 


If you have any questions about a piece of homework, please speak to us. We are happy to help and support you where needed. You or your child could message us on Seesaw should you need help.
