We believe the purpose of home learning is to:
- develop an effective partnership between the school, parents and other carers.
- consolidate and reinforce skills and understanding in English and Maths.
- access resources for learning of all kinds, at home and in the environment.
- encourage pupils to develop the confidence and self-discipline needed to study on their own.
Tasks which involve work at home are (depending on age and ability and possibly home circumstances at times):
- Support for English
The focus throughout the school is regular reading, sharing books together, and the discussion that follows reading with your child. Please ask at the school office for a "Reading with your Child" leaflet with further hints and tips available to help.
- Support for Numeracy/Mathematics
Children are encouraged to join the schools Mathematics Library and borrow Mathematics games to learn at home. In addition, children are asked to learn basic number recognition, number bonds, counting and times tables appropriate to their ability. Achievement in this area is recognised by certificates presented to the children.
- Other Activities
Other tasks will be set which are linked to skills based learning. These may be completed over one week or a longer period of time. These are linked to classroom learning and may be research based. These activities help to make each topic more relevant and exciting for the children.
Further information on specific year group expectations and hand in dates can be found in our Home Learning Policy (please note that this policy is currently under review and the reviewed policy will be published here as soon as possible.)
