Homework


Why we do homework?
Homework assignments are meant to enforce what has been learnt at school.

Thomas Gamuel is committed to raising achievement for all children. Our Homework Policy forms a vital part of this initiative. Research show that time spent on learning activities at home, significantly increases achievement overall.

How to support your child
We ask you to support your child's learning at home and in everyday life in the following ways:

  • Read as often as possible, visit the local library and encourage your child to select a variety of books to read
  • Ensure that your child completes their homework
  • Encourage maths concepts in everyday life, e.g. when cooking or shopping and practice timetables
  • Playing games together e.g Scrabble or Connect 4
