At Riverside Federation, we believe that homework is an opportunity to rehearse skills learnt in school. We want homework to be part of a child's routine, but not a chore or battle for parents.
The MOST important homework we ask of our children is to read, read and read some more! Reading is the key to learning and making good progress in school and future life.
We also send home Tackling Tables or Tackling Add/Subtract for children to practise their mathematical fluency. Instant recall of simple addition/subtraction facts, and multiplication/division facts, enables children to work more confidently with more complex concepts in maths.
Sometimes, class teachers will set other pieces of homework that directly link to something taught in class.
Children who return homework and read at home will be rewarded with Family Points on Class Dojo.
