Heacham Junior School


Homework is given on a regular basis with the emphasis on literacy and numeracy on set days of the week (Monday and Wednesday - literacy, Tuesday and Thursday – maths)  Setting and monitoring appropriate work is the responsibility of the group’s teacher.   On occasions, the regular homework timetable may be suspended in favour of an extended activity such as a mathematical investigation, reading assignment or other project.

  • In Years Three and Four, homework, including daily reading, should not exceed thirty minutes per day.
  • In Years Five and Six, homework, including daily reading, should not exceed forty-five minutes per day.

Children who do not complete homework tasks satisfactorily may be asked to complete or amend assignments at playtime or lunchtime. We will endeavour to work with and support parents whose children repeatedly fail to complete homework assignments.
