Homework

Homework does not need to be a burden or chore. Our aim to develop a positive attitude to continuing education outside of school hours. Remember, Homework shouldn't be a drama but rather a habit.

MACC Homework Policy Guideline:

Stage 2 25-30 minutes per weeknight (including 15 minutes reading time)

Stage 3 30-40 minutes per weeknight (including 20 minutes reading time)



So normal homework each week is:

1:      Reading - Each night (if possible). Keep a record in the reading log that is in your diary.

2:      Complete Maths activities (usually Mathletics.) Show parents what you are doing. These tasks are chosen based on individual needs.

3:      Complete any Google Classroom assignment or task that has been given out.

4:      Log on to Quill.org and complete tasks on Grammar that have been set.



If additional activities are required:
  • any website or game that helps consolidate times tables skills. Mastery of tables is a vital foundation for work from here on.
  • any other activity to consolidate skills being taught in class.
  • Find an interest and develop a deeper understanding of that topic through reading, viewing, questioning and experimenting. If it is video games, find out how to make your own through coding (Scratch, coding.org)
Examples:




If your child is having difficulties at all with homework, please put a note in the diary and get them to show their teacher.
