Home Learning

 

Recent and extensive educational research has found that homework for primary aged children has minimal impact unless it reinforces learning and regularly allows children to rehearse and practise skills and facts e.g. times tables and spellings.  Therefore our homework scheme has been revised to reflect this.

 

Creative Home Learning

 

Each term the children are given a list of suggested activities connected to their topic e.g. Fighting for Survival (Year 2) and Why Britain? (Year 4).  These activities have links with other areas of the curriculum and give opportunity to reinforce learning whilst providing opportunity to extend learning.  Children are asked to choose their own tasks, encouraging creativity and independence.  These activities allow opportunity to demonstrate a range of lifelong skills that embrace individual interests and talents.

 

Home Learning will be celebrated within the year group and children given the opportunity to self and peer evaluate their work.
