Homework at Broadford Primary School


At Broadford Primary School we believe homework is about balance.

We understand that homework can be an ideal opportunity for consolidation for some, a battle for others, an opportunity for creativity for some of our pupils or quality time for carer and child in what can often be a very busy week.

Daily Homework Expectations
There are home-based tasks that we know help your child at school.  These are fundamental and must be completed every day:

These are 'on average' expectations:
- 15 minutes of reading per night (EYFS. KS1 and KS2)
- 15 minutes of mathematics per night (KS1 & KS2)
- 15 minutes of spelling per night (KS1 & KS2)

Other Learning Opportunities at Home - optional
Click on the year group link to take you to to a booklet of home-based learning.  It contains ideas linked to reading, maths and other areas of learning.  

Y1 - Y2: Homework Bingo - optional
We understand children have commitments outside of school but if you have time, children in KS1 are encouraged to take part in 4 or more learning tasks from the Bingo cards at home.  This will be celebrated at school.  Please follow this link for this term's Homework Bingo.

Y3 - Y6: Worldly Wise Challenge - optional
Children in KS2 take part in weekly Worldly Wise assemblies where they learn 'a little about a lot'.  The Worldly Wise Challenge is an opportunity for children to carry out further research linked to the half termly topic.  Please follow this link for more information on this term's topic.

Fact Hunter and SPAG Detectives - optional
Each week, children can solve a SPAG error or complete their own research for an interesting fact on a given topic (click here to see this term's).  In recognition of applying SPaG skills to real life situations and investigating crimes against the English Language AND in recognition of insatiable appetite for knowledge
and ability to sniff out amazing facts, children will be celebrated in school with their peers.
