Home Learning

Welcome to the Home Learning Page

The tasks set for home learning allow children to practise and consolidate skills they have learnt in school, but also give them a valuable opportunity to share their learning with you.  In Year 6, home learning also serves as preparation for the transition to secondary school, encouraging children to develop the vital life skills of personal organisation and time management. Home Learning will be given to the children every week and will consist of activities related to the Literacy and Numeracy curriculum that the children have been completing in school.  This may consist of activities to consolidate and re-enforce what has been learnt in a lesson, or investigation work linked to a topic. All the activities set will have clear learning intentions and give opportunities for children to succeed and progress. In addition to this, children will be given an Extended Home Learning project each term.

According to research, pupils who read at least 35 minutes a day with a 90% comprehension rate on Accelerated Reader quizzes see the greatest gains. Therefore, pupils should have at least 35 minutes set aside for reading during each day. Although pupils have the opportunity to read in school each day, they should also be reading and discussing their reading for a minimum of 20 minutes a day at home. Pupils can quiz on books they have read by logging in to Accelerated Reader:
