Learning at Home
The main focus of our home learning at Wooden Hill is on reading. Please ensure that your child reads at home every day and that you sign their reading record daily to confirm that you have heard them read. It is also very important, as your child becomes a more independent reader, to talk to them about the books that they have read and the things that have happened in them. Children of all ages also love to be read to. Reading to your child exposes them to new and interesting language and ideas so please don't think that they are too old for a story!
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 you to be as creative as possible with your ideas.
Some ideas for projects are:
- Make a poster
- Make a photo album
- Write a poem or fact file
- Create a science project or investigation
Our current topics are: Science - Forces and Magnets, Geography - Where We Live (How Bracknell has changed over time), RE - Christianity: How does religious belief encourage 'good' behaviour?
