Homework can play a vital part in your child’s education. It can provide an opportunity to reinforce skills, let them make use of resources which are not available in school and encourage the confidence and self-discipline needed to study on their own.
All pupils at All Saints have homework. The amount given each week increases as the children move up through the school. At the beginning of each year you will be given a homework schedule. Each child will also be given a homework diary which records work set, the amount of time to be spent on the task and can be used for parents and teachers to share information.
More information about the amount and type of homework provided is available in our Homework Policy and Homework Information for Parents leaflet.
For children who do not have access to the internet outside school (for online work issued on MyMaths) or who want a little guidance regarding their homework, we run a Homework Club every Tuesday and Thursday lunchtime in the Computing Suite. The club is on a drop-in basis and runs from 12.35pm for half-an-hour.
From January 2017, the school has provided much of its maths homework online using MyMaths. The site can be easily accessed via computers or smart devices via a web-brower such as Chrome or Firefox.
When using Apple technology, using the Safari web-browser, the MyMaths website tends not to work properly. Instead, please follow the instructions below for installing the Puffin Academy app and for accessing MyMaths within it.
Each child has his or her own unique login. Reminders of the login details can be obtained via the School Office.
Additional Maths and English Practice
Should you wish to extend your child's use of online resources through extra work at home, it is possible to undertake additional MyMaths modules without them being set by the class teacher.
Additional resources may also be found in maths and English at the IXL website. Here you will find resources in Year groups - many of which will help your child with deeper learning concepts.
