At Hollybrook Junior School we believe that homework is a great opportunity to consolidate and extend the fantastic learning we do in school. Homework is given out on Thursdays and is due by the following Tuesday.
Homework can take many forms including preparing a speech, presentations, posters, interviews, extended writing opportunities and more open ended challenges. Some things for instance times tables and spellings may sometimes be set as homework but may be something you would still like to practise at home each week. Below are the expectations and progressions for each Year group’s homework.
Years 3 and 4: 1 - 1½ hours per week
Years 5 and 6: 1 ½ - 2 hours per week
