New Homework Menu's are out for Autumn 2!
Oakwood’s Homework Policy aims:
- Allows parents, carers and guardians the opportunity to become actively involved in their child’s learning journey.
- Builds on the high standards of teaching and learning within the Academy and consolidate what pupils have learned in class.
- Reward pupils for completing additional work completed outside of the classroom.
At Oakwood Academy we provide all children with homework to enable them to practice skills and learning they have already done in school. Sometimes the aim is to repeat something done in class as a practice exercise. On other times, the homework will ask children to apply their learning to a new context.
We aim to provide opportunities for parents/carers to work alongside their child or children to support their learning in school. This is because we want to work as a partnership in your child’s learning – school, the child and their parents working together to help your child to reach their potential.
Subjects of homework sent home will differ and is dependent on the learning needs of the individual student. Other purposes include to reinforce class learning and to extend the knowledge of lesson topics/themes
Learning at home is an essential part of good education. Regular homework is important as it gives students the opportunity to practice at home tasks covered in class, and helps students work towards improving important skills. It also helps young people become confident in their future learning. Subjects will set a range of project based tasks based on the need of the individual and the curriculum they are following.
