Home Learning

Helping your child at home with their learning is very important. It supports and extends the learning in the classroom and enables parents and carers to be more closely involved with their child’s education.

Reading with your child daily is essential; we will send home reading books regularly.

Weekly spellings and word lists will also be issued.

For mathematics, pupils will be given weekly times tables/number fact recall practice, as well as specific activities related to a mathematical skill. For information about our Cracking Times Tables scheme used in KS1 and KS2, please see the booklet below.

Cracking Times Tables – Parent/Carer Guide 2017/2018 (3MB)

In addition, children will have half-termly activities linked to their current topic. These will provide opportunities for children to think creatively, embed their learning and produce their own form of response: for example, a model or piece of art work, a project, an IT presentation, a recount following a family visit or a cooking activity. These topics lead to a celebratory topic afternoon for parents/carers to join in with.

Further details about our home learning will be published in our home learning policy.
