All syndicates have a regular age-appropriate homework programme. At Miramar North School we believe that homework should not be too excessive. At this age, homework is about taking time to practice the different skills and knowledge that enables children to access the curriculum more easily in class. We recognise the importance of getting outside to play after a busy day at school. Key areas of homework are reading, completing tasks on Mathseeds/Mathletics and Spelling practice.

Formal parent interviews to discuss children’s progress are held during the year. However, if problems arise you are encouraged to talk to your child’s teacher at any time other than class time. Please email your classroom teacher to arrange an appropriate time to meet.
Parents and grandparents are invited to help at school. This could be assisting with class programmes, helping in the library, providing transport for school trips, reading with children, and assisting with sports. Let your child’s teacher know if you are able to assist at school.
