At Otterburn we encourage parents to share in their child’s learning with the work they bring home.  Homework focuses on literacy and numeracy skills consolidating and reinforcing aspects of the subject learnt in school.

 Homework provides an appropriate means for children to:

 Consolidate and reinforce what is learnt in the classroom

  • Build up basic skills, particularly in reading, writing and numeracy
  • Become curious and independent learners
  • Develop good study skills
  • Prepare for the next stage of their education in secondary school

The school very much appreciates the support given in completing homework tasks and handing homework in on time.  Parents are always welcome to speak to their child’s teacher if they have any queries about homework.
