Children at our school are encouraged to do some home learning, although it is felt important that this should not detract from the children’s involvement with outside activities such as Scouting/Guiding/swimming/family life etc.
This simple introduction to working on their own promotes self-discipline and helps to strengthen the link between home and school. It also prepares the child for the more extensive home study required at secondary level.
Home Learning will relate to work being undertaken in school and may be in the form of pursuing an aspect of their topic work, investigative studies, learning number facts and spelling. Additional Home Learning may be given to children who need to complete unfinished class work.
Home Learning tasks will be posted on the Blog page for the childrens key stage group.
Parents will be informed at the beginning of each year regarding the format and expectations of Home Learning in their child’s class.
As well as the topic related Home Learning, it is important that children read as much as possible. See our Reading at Home page for advice on how you can help your child and also access our 100 Top Reads lists for each keystage.
Our Home Learning Policy is availble on the Policies page.
