Home Learning

Sharing the Learning Journey

Pupils and parents will have a chance to identify and share learning which takes place at home in the Home / School book.  Here are examples of home learning we might set for your child.

Reading (inc. word work)

Reading a book chosen by school or reading purely for pleasure. Learning words – to read or spell.

Thinking Child Literacy Box – help yourself to cards from the box in the entrance.

Reading, Writing, Words & Sentences, Spelling. These are the key areas for developing literacy but most importantly they promote strategies for thinking and learning about each of those aspects.

Thinking Child Numeracy Box – help yourself to cards from the box in the entrance.

The Numeracy Box is designed with the same principles in mind as The Literacy Box – to promote thinking skills.

Just because we give ‘options’ for home learning, we do not mean that homework is ‘optional’.  Our home school books will ensure that families are recording and celebrating the extended learning that takes place outside the classroom.
