At Lister Infant School we believe extra-curricular activities play a very important role in the life of the pupil and the school. We therefore offer a variety of clubs for our children to join and enjoy both at lunchtimes and after school. These are changed each term. Letters will be sent out shortly for the clubs beginning in the spring term.
The children at Lister Infants are encouraged to work very hard at school and make the most of the time that they spend here. Whilst their school day ends at 3.00, their education does not. Many children will have after school activities to attend that are important to their all round development. In addition to this, we strongly feel that pupils need some time at the end of the school day to relax and play – vital ingredients for good child development!
Therefore we promote a homework that seeks to strike a balance. This means regular meaningful homework that supports and reinforces the work in the classroom yet which still allows for plenty of “free time” which is so necessary for other areas of good child development.. The homework is a perfect balance of skill based sheets and project work, allowing children the opportunity to consolidate and hone skills and to plan and present their own project in their own unique way. We believe school homework should enrich a child’s education.
We value your support in helping your child with their work at home and we would ask that you help your child by encouraging him/her to work in a quiet area away from the TV and by monitoring the quality of their work.
Regular homework is given throughout Reception, Year 1 and Year 2:
- Phonics (letter sounds)
- Regular reading practise
- Project work based on class topics
Homework is sent using the Seesaw app but paper copies can be provided on request to the class teacher.
Support materials can be found under curriculum subject tabs.
