At Bushy Hill we believe well-organised, structured homework tasks and activities make an important contribution to a child’s progress and achievement. Homework provides a good opportunity for parents to be actively involved in their child’s learning in partnership with the school and to demonstrate positive attitudes towards the importance of learning.
Tasks will complement the curriculum topics and learning that the children are working on in class and will take different forms, e.g. research, discussing, longer projects.
