The purpose of homework at Victoria Park Junior School is to provide opportunities for parents/carers to be involved in their child’s learning. It is also to develop a dialogue between home and school.
Homework enables children to practice and consolidate skills and understanding, particularly in English and mathematics. It aims to enable children to take responsibility for their own learning, to become independent learners and to increase their self-confidence.
The homework set will help to prepare children and develop their organisational skills for the next stage in their education.
