Lordship Lane Primary School

A Love of Learning and the Perseverance to Succeed


Homework at Lordship Lane


Research evidence, including from the Educational Endowment Foundation (EEF), has shown that homework is most effective when children focus on practising things that they have already covered in school. This idea underpins homework at Lordship Lane.



The most important homework for all children at Lordship Lane is daily reading.  Children should spend 15-30 minutes reading at home every day, including at the weekend. This is by far the most important thing that children can do at home to support their learning.


Times Tables

All children in key stage 2 (years 3-6) have a login for Times Tables Rock StarsPlaying these times tables games for a short period every day will support children enormously with their maths.



Children need to practise and consolidate their learning from school. As such, we will set homework for children in years 1-6 using SeesawPlease speak to the class teacher if you are struggling to log in.


Every week, there will be three homework activities on seesaw:

  1. Maths. Children will practise some of the maths they have already done in school.
  2. Phonics/Spelling. Children in key stage 2 have a list of spellings to learn linked to the rules they are learning in school. In key stage 1, children have a list of words containing the phonics sounds they have learnt to practise with their parents.
  3. Reviewing facts. Each week children have facts from their knowledge builder to memorise at home. This is linked to the knowledge they have worked on in class.
