We endeavour to give prompt feedback to children about their homework. The work is always marked but time does not always allow for the detailed written comments that are often given for work undertaken during school lesson times. The teacher’s feedback is often verbal. Detailed marking by the teacher is not always appropriate as homework is often consolidation of class work or preparation for future work.
Sometimes the children will mark their own or each other’s work. This is in accordance with Assessment for Learning, which encourages children to assess their own work or the work of their peers, and is proven to be a motivating factor.
