We know that learning takes place at home as well as at school and we encourage children to pursue their own interests as well as practising skills and learning English and Maths facts that will help them now and in the future.
We ask that all children read every day if possible at home. This is the most important skill they can learn in Primary School and will help them with every subject now and in the future. The key is that they read little and often so that it remains a pleasure and not a chore. We provide School Planners so they can record what they read and reflect on what they like to read.
We know that learning number facts such as multiplication tables and number bonds enable children to spot patterns and become efficient and accurate in Maths. Practising tables at home is a really good use of time. The School Planner has all the tables in to support this.
We do not like to overload children with homework but occasionally, children may be given other work to help them catch up if they have gaps in their learning.
If any parent would like any other additional work to do at home – they should contact the classteacher.
Home-School Learning if Self-Isolating
If your child is self-isolating in line with Government guidance (providing they are well enough to work) their classteacher will provide work on Class Dojo which follows the work currently going on in class as closely as possible. They will be able to upload work, and messages to teachers will be picked up as often as is practical in the school day.
