Homework Drive Project

Creating opportunities for mathematical learning outside of school has become an important focus of the work of our project. 

In April 2012 we introduced a ‘homework drive’. In November 2013, we also introduced resources that can be used during the long summer holidays

Independent learner resources 

All the homework resources are available here.

What about learning loss during the long summer holidays?

In general, low-income students lose around 3 months of grade-level equivalency during the summer months. Middle-income students lose about 1 month of grade-level equivalency over the summer, therefore, the achievement gap widens. Research shows the summer programs and family programs which increase reading and numeracy in a recreational way help to overcome this.

With this in mind, we have put together a couple of activities that learners (and their families) can do over the summer holidays to keep their minds active.
