What is Homework?

At Mossgate we view homework as being supported or independent tasks which are undertaken outside of curriculum time which re-inforce, extend or enrich current learning. Different homework is set for different year groups which is shared at the beginning of the school year by class teachers.

Why is it set?

The purpose of homework is:

  • To provide opportunities for parents to be involved in children’s learning
  • To enable children to practise and consolidate skills
  • To enable children to take responsibility for their own learning, become more independent and develop perseverance
  • To enable the learning in school to be added to and enriched by learning at home
