From year 2 upwards, children are expected to complete a piece of Maths and a piece of English home learning once a week. This enables parents to see what their children have been learning about that week as well as giving the children an opportunity to consolidate their learning at home.
Work-a-Books: The children will be asked to complete a task from their work-a-books once a week. The expectation is that all children will complete part A, most children should complete part B and if they wish to challenge themselves further they can also complete part C.
Set tasks are written in the pages of the Work-a-Book and at the back of each book there is also lined or squared paper for your child to make any notes. ‘Thinking Tasks’ will be set on occasion so please take note of the exact tasks written in your child’s book. Pages to complete are also up on display by the classroom doors.
Please note that the children will also bring home books to practise number facts and spelling patterns.
Parents can support their children by reading with them each night and discussing the books they have read.
The children work very hard at school during the day so we want to keep home learning simple and easy to manage. The concept of ‘little and often’ works best, and can have a great impact.
Occasionally your child may be given a home learning project to complete, which is a great opportunity to get you and your child talking about their learning. These projects are intended to be fun and to extend your child’s learning beyond the classroom. If you have any questions about projects or any aspect of Home Learning, please speak to your child’s class teacher.
