Daily Homework at Saint Martin's
All pupils are expected to do homework/Prep each evening. It will comprise of some or all of the following:
- Reading (at least 20 minutes each evening)
- Memorising Knowledge Organisers*
- Maths practice
- Other work set by the class teacher
"I don't have any homework" is a phrase no St Martin's pupil can say!
Reading is THE most important way in which a pupil can develop their academic potential. Reading, at least 20 minutes every day, will over the course of a child’s life time have a huge impact on their progress across all subjects.
Knowledge Organisers ‘Higher-order thinking is knowledge-based: The almost universal feature of reliable higher-order thinking about any subject or problem is the possession of a broad, well-integrated base of background knowledge relevant to the subject’. E D Hirsch
