At Middleton Park School we view education as a partnership between home and school and believe that both should work together for the benefit of the children in our care. Through this partnership we aim to develop each child to their full potential.

The child will realise that learning is not only school based and but takes place everywhere and continues for life. Every term the whole school will be involved in a Focus Week on a different area of the curriculum. A homework challenge will be set for the week, usually in video format, and can be accessed from this link.

Homework Aims

• to make parents aware of pupils progress and give some insight into the curriculum

• to develop good work habits and self discipline

• to allow practice and consolidation of work done in class

The children experience a broad and balanced education as delivered through the 3-18 Curricular Guidelines. This will be reflected in the type of homework your child may be given.

Homework activities will normally take place between Monday – Thursday nights. Suggested time:

P1-3 15-20 mins approximately

P4-5 20-30 mins approximately

P6-7 30-45 mins approximately
