It is our view that children work incredibly hard at school and need time at home to assimilate the information they have learned during the day and enjoy other activities. Generally, our homework tasks focus on the consolidation of the acquisition of key skills in English and Maths and a range of creative tasks, linked to topic learning.
What is the purpose of home learning?
• To consolidate and reinforce skills and understanding, particularly in English and Maths
• To provide opportunities for parents and children to work together
• To extend school learning and allow parents to gain an understanding of what children are learning in school
• To allow children to progress towards becoming more independent learners
Our approach for each class is set out as follows:
At the present time (Autumn 2020) we will be sending home reading and a topic home learning project for all of our children. The amount of home learning will increase throughout the year as children increase their learning stamina after a long period away from school.
