Homework & Assessment

Homework

Homework is an essential part of the curriculum. Acquiring the habit of study at home stands children in good stead throughout their education, and helps develop the ability to work independently as well as extend work completed in the classroom.

All pupils are expected to read to an adult every evening for the time set by the class teacher. In addition, pupils have specific tasks set either weekly or daily; the amount of homework each week increases as children progress through the school.

The homework diary is the main method of communication between parents and the school.  The Reading Record is a useful log of reading conducted by each pupil. Prep 6 pupils have a personal Magdalene House Prep School combined reading record and homework diary.

For Middle School (4th to 5th Form)
