Homework advice from the DfE
Government guidelines on homework give a broad indication of the type of activities and how much time pupils might reasonably be expected to spend on homework.
For infants the guidelines are:
- Years one and two - 1 hour per week
- However, the guidelines emphasise that it is more important that homework is of high quality and helps your child to learn than the amount of time they spend on it in a week.
- The guidelines encourage schools to plan homework carefully alongside the work children do at school, and to make sure that all activities are appropriate for individual pupils.
- Schools are expected to organise homework carefully.
- All homework activities should be related to work pupils are doing in class.
- Homework should not always be written work – It should also be project work.
- In infant schools’ pupils should be reading with parents or carers, they should practice mathematical skills, phonics, spellings and handwriting, project work, making and finding out information.
- Parents should support their children with homework, however, there may be times when children should be encouraged to show what they can do on their own.
