Home Learning

Home learning gives the pupil the opportunity to reflect on, consolidate and apply learning. This has a positive effect on their progress and begins to make them responsible for their own learning; an important skill for their future. The Key areas for St Katherine's are:

 

  • Good balance between family time and homework
  • Working closely with parents
  • Homework increasing as the pupil gets older in preparation for secondary school
  • Consolidation of mathematical learning
  • Emphasis on sounds and spelling rules
  • Developing a love for reading and recognition of the importance of comprehension
