Homework

At Milford School we don't give regular 'formal' homework.  We recognise that many parents have limited time to spend with their children and we encourage families to spend quality time together.  
We would recommend that children are involved in practical activities such as educational board games, sport, music, art where possible.

Most importantly, we ask that parents spend between ten and twenty minutes per day sharing a book with their child.  Phonics workshops are held regularly to explain our methods of introducing Phonic language. Further advice on how parents may help, will be provided on request.  Do look in our Learning Links section of the website for lots of useful resources!

Occasionally Mathematics or spelling homework is given. Usually it will involve work that is linked to the current topic. Parents are encouraged to use practical methods of helping children with mathematics at home, e.g. counting out change, telling the time, dividing food into halves, and quarters, etc.
