GSO Test


At Willowpark Primary Academy homework is set by class teachers and sent out at the beginning of every half term.

Homework is project based, children are given a range of activities to choose from, which will be linked to the topic children are working on in class.

Examples might include designing a poster, writing a leaflet or creating a model. You might be challenged to visit somewhere new or to interview family and friends on a specific topic. Homework is then returned to school at the end of the half term then shared, celebrated and rewarded with the rest of the class. These learning challenges are a great way to get all the family involved.

In addition to half termly challenges, all children are sent home with year group specific spellings to learn each week. Reading should happen every night and parents are asked to sign children’s reading records when they have read at home.

Home Learning - Our Knowledge Organisers

At the start of a new unit of learning, children are given knowledge organisers so they know the knowledge they will be taught and they can use during their topic. You can help your child to become more knowledgeable by reading this together and by learning the knowledge.
