Learning at Home
Children should be completing home learning at least three times a week.
This can be broken down as:
•Reading — 20 minutes — we set two lots of reading home learning: reading to/with an adult and ReadTheory. When reading with a child, please try to ask questions about the book (the author, illustrator, story, characters, setting etc.). There is also the ReadTheory website which helps to support the progression of reading skills.
•Spelling — 10 minutes — spellings are set each week on Spelling Shed to learn.
•Times Tables — 10 minutes — timetables are set/changed as and when appropriate.
•Google Classroom — one piece of home learning will be set each week to be completed.
In addition, the tabs on the side of this page give information about practising spelling at home as well as learning key number facts. It is very important that your child practises both of these key areas as often as possible.
For additional home learning, children can choose an area or topic that interests them from our current knowledge organisers and create their own project around this theme. This is an optional piece of home learning which will be celebrated in the last week of each half-term in each class. We encourage any children taking part in this to be as creative as possible with their ideas.
Some ideas for projects include:
- Make a poster
- Make a photo album
- Write a poem or fact file
- Create a science project or investigation
