At RFPS we believe home learning is invaluable as it helps reinforce learning from within the classroom or supports pupils when preparing for future learning.
Using feedback from our parents and pupils and reviewing the effectiveness of homework in primary school we have collectively decided on the following approach to homework:
RFPS provide a varied programme of activities for our children both within and outside of the standard day.
Homework activities are set using the SeeSaw app. Your child will have received an individual Seesaw login to enable them to access the platform. Your child’s teacher will then set work for your child each Friday. Work can be completed on ‘SeeSaw’ or in the homework book provided.
Homework activities are set each Friday for the pupils throughout the entire school and should be returned to their class teacher (digitally or in their homework book) by the following Wednesday.
Following feedback in our most recent Parent Survey, we have also introduced ‘Topic Homework’. Topic homework consists of a list of topic related activities linking to most of the curriculum areas. Our pupils can choose a minimum of five activities from this list which can be completed at any point during a half term. The completed home learning can be returned to school digitally or within the child’s homework book at any time.
