We believe that home learning encourages independent learning and forms an important link between home and school, therefore it is important that children begin to bring learning home from year 3 onwards. Homework can enable children to make use of materials and information sources not available in the classroom. It can involve parents (and other family members) in the children’s work Learning in school is extended and enriched through weekly home learning set on a Wednesday; following a weekly cycle of Literacy, Mathematics and Creative projects. We aim to support families with siblings as the focus for home learning is therefore the same across the school.
Home Learning may be designed to consolidate key skills, to extend understanding, encourage independent research or explore creativity!
