home learning

Each week, the children are set Home Learning.

Our aims are:

  • To enthuse learning
  • To develop essential skills
  • To enable parents to support their child with their learning
  • To build upon learning in school
  • To be accessible for all

Why have homework?

Learning at home helps to develop good learning attitudes within children. Home learning helps to build a bridge between school, children and parents.

What are the benefits of home learning?

Research shows that home learning can have a positive impact upon learning when used in a focused way.

The positive side is that:

  • Children become enthused when faced with investigative, open ended and practical home activities
  • Parents are able to support where the school clearly links the home learning with the school learning.
  • Children can rehearse essential skills
  • Children can develop good learning behaviours

The type of home learning will depend upon the age, ability, interest and Learning Journey at the time

Remote Learning

If children are away from school due to illness, we would not expect them to carry out any home learning or remote learning. On some rare occasion, children may be off school but able to continue with their learning. 

Below are some suggestions, should you wish to carry out any further learning or wish to support your child with any learning whilst they are at home.

Phonics support: The Little Wandle website is linked to the phonics we teach in school. 

Reading: Listening to stories or reading a book always supports your child's learning. 

Maths- your child can access their TT Rock Stars account or MyMaths account to develop Key Skills

Wide Range of Subjects can be found on the Oak Academy website. The Half Termly Curriculum letter will give you details of what your child is learning each half term.
