Independent Learning

Learning at home is an important aspect of every child’s education. It not only gives pupils the opportunity to share their learning with their family members it also allows children to feel more confident and independent with their learning tasks.

All children are expected to take part in a variety of independent home learning tasks, which support them to consolidate their learning.

Home learning tasks will vary depending on your child’s age and ability. If your child is struggling to complete independent learning tasks or is not finding them challenging enough, please do discuss this with your child’s teacher who may be able to adapt work accordingly.

There is a huge amount of evidence and research to say that every child should have the opportunity to read aloud every day. Reading supports language development and increases children’s vocabulary, builds curiosity and imagination, supports fluency and accuracy and encourages children to find a passion for reading which they can take with them into adult life. It is therefore expected that every child should read with an adult at home at least 5 times a week, which should be recorded in the children’s reading diaries. If you would like any additional information, please do not hesitate to discuss this with your child’s class teacher.

Home learning in EYFS

We love to give our pupils the opportunity to consolidate their learning, so we set Home Learning every week in different areas of the curriculum.

These areas include:

· Reading

· English – Writing

· Mathematics

The Home Learning work will link to what has been taught that week so that pupils can continue to practise their skills at home.

We also set half-termly home learning projects, for pupils to show off their creative skills!

Reading aloud every day is encouraged for every child in the Academy. In the Early Years, this may be sharing a picture book at home, reading their school reading book, practising key words and sounds or discussing the pictures in a book.

Home Learning in KS1 and KS2

Children in Years 1-6 receive home learning tasks weekly.

Every half term, we will send home spelling booklets for children to practice weekly. They will have a spelling test every Friday. These spellings are words all children nationally are expected to know by the end of the year.

Every year, we send home a poetry anthology. Our aim is for children to be able to recite poems by heart. There is a focus poem every half term for children to learn and perform.

There are also tasks focusing on English and maths on Purple Mash and Freckle Maths. These will link to children’s prior learning and recap important skills.

Please do remember that children should be reading every day for at least 20 minutes. This will support pupil’s confidence, fluency and understanding.

If you do have any questions about any home learning, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher.
