Homework

At Stamshaw Junior School we believe that a well organised homework programme helps children to develop the skills and attitudes necessary for successful life-long learning.

We aim to:

  • Provide clear, well planned, structured tasks that are linked to the relevant curriculum.
  • Ensure that homework allows for pupils to consolidate and deepen learning.
  • Encourage parents to become involved in their children’s school work,  particularly with creative projects.

Please select from the following year groups to see examples of the homework your children may be set.
