Home Learning

Home Learning

Pupils in Years 1 to 6 will receive a homework grid with multiple tasks each half term linked to the learning in their class. These tasks will be varied and should be worked around pupils’ activities and family commitments. We fully appreciate how important pupils home life is to their overall development and we do not want families struggling to complete homework at the expense of family time, however as many of these tasks should be completed to enhance the work covered in school.

We will also hold a ‘Homework Share’ showcase once a half term where parents and carers will have the opportunity to share their child’s/children’s learning and homework. The dates will be shared via Google Classroom and Class Dojo each half term.

In addition to the homework grid, weekly spellings will be sent home for pupils to learn to then be tested on the following week and their scores for each test will be recorded in their planners. Daily reading is also vitally important to develop pupil’s vocabulary and imagination.

We would like our KS1 pupils to spend 10 minutes each day reading a book and pupils in KS2 to read for at least 20 minutes.

EYFS homework differs slightly. EYFS pupils are expected to read with an adult at home for 10 minutes each day. ‘Home learning challenges’ will be sent home or shared via Class Dojo to complete at home linked to the topic. Additionally, phonics sounds and work will be sent home to complement the sounds that the pupils will have be learning when the staff feel this would benefit the pupils.

If you would like any additional homework for your child/children please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher and they will be more than happy to share further activities that would benefit your child/children. Also please see additional website links below:
