Raunds Park Infants believe that homework has the following main purposes:

  • Developing an effective partnership between the school, and parents and other carers.
  • Giving parents insight into their child’s learning and achievements.
  • Reinforcing, consolidating and extending classroom learning, particularly in Maths and English.
  • Developing the confidence and self-discipline for independent learning.

'Family Challenges' explained

These challenges are linked to the Cornerstone’s topic being taught. Generally, these are open-ended and can be completed and recorded in various ways. Children who complete a challenge earn 10 team points for their team (in Reception the children earn different treats depending on how many challenges are completed). We aim for all children will all complete at least one challenge per term. 

If you need any support with homework, please speak to a member of staff in your child's class. We can provide access to computers and resources if these are not available at home.
