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.

 

Reading

Children are expected to read at home regularly (at least 15 - 20 minutes daily) and to discuss their reading with an adult at home to develop language and comprehension. Please ensure that there are 3 entries with a comment written in the reading records each week. Entries should not only be made when a book is finished, but should be made while still reading a book. These comments can be written either by the child or by a parent/carer. Reading Record books must be brought into school every Monday to be checked. We are only looking for a sentence or two so the children can demonstrate their understanding of what they have read. For example, 'I enjoyed the beginning of the story because it was full of suspense.' 

 

Children are able to change their reading book whenever they need to.  Also children may borrow books from the Junior Library. We encourage the children to share their library book with an adult at home as well.
