From year 2 upwards, children are expected to complete a piece of Maths and a piece of English home learning once a week. This enables parents to see what their children have been learning about that week as well as giving the children an opportunity to consolidate their learning at home.
Parents can support their children by reading with them each night and discussing the books they have read. Parent forums are held throughout the year to help support parents with home learning.
The children work very hard at school during the day so we want to keep home learning simple and easy to manage. The concept of ‘little and often’ works best, and a few minutes of spelling or number work each night can have a great impact.
Occasionally your child will be given a home learning project to complete, which is a great opportunity to get you and your child talking about their learning. These projects are intended to be fun and to extend your child’s learning beyond the classroom. If you have any questions about projects or any aspect of Home Learning, please speak to your child’s class teacher.
