Home Learning

Home Learning gives the children the opportunity to reflect on, consolidate and apply learning.

 

This has a positive effect on their progress and begins to make them responsible for their own learning; an important skill for their future.

Home learning challenges will be set during the holidays and will be a fun and creative project. The activities set will enable your child to show their creative side and record their pieces in a way that they wish. These can include: drawings, photographs, models, written, videos and PowerPoint to name a few.

Spellings

Spellings will be sent home every Monday and children will then be tested on these words the following Monday.  We also practise these spellings in school during the week.  Scores are recorded and certificates are handed out in class to children who achieve full marks.

Spelling games and ideas to help you learn.

Reading

Children are expected to read every evening and the pages they have read should be recorded in the Reading Journal. The Reading Journal needs to be brought into school every day to enable the teacher and teaching assistant to monitor reading and the texts that are being read.

Your child will also receive a reading task (when suitable) which will be based on the text or part of text they have been reading.

If there is ever a reason why your child has not been able to complete their home learning or reading, please inform the class teacher or teaching assistant as soon as you can.

KS1

All children will receive a Maths task or English, Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling (EGPS) task once a week. This task will be based around the learning the children have been completing in class and will be used to check and consolidate their understanding.

KS2

All children will receive a Maths task and an English, Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling (EGPS) task on a Wednesday, to be returned by the following Monday. These tasks will be based around the learning that has been taking place in class and will be used to check and consolidate their understanding.

My child is struggling with their home learning - what should I do?

If your child is struggling with their home learning, then please speak to your child’s class teacher who will be more than happy to help.  You can also communicate any difficulties to your child's class teacher by writing a message in their book.
