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 learning tasks, which support them to consolidate their learning.

Independent 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.Indepdent learning

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. Reading can take through many different forms and there are suggestions about reading activities that may support reading at home. If you would like any additional information, please do not hesitate to discuss this with your child’s class teacher.


Independent learning in EYFS

Children are developing and learning at all opportunities, in the early years we capture this by sending home ‘I shine like a star at home’ stars, they are to enable teachers to see children in different settings.

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 having a discussion about the pictures in a book.


Home Learning in KS1 and KS2

Home Learning in KS1 and KS2Children in Years 1, 2 and 3 receive a home learning task weekly. Within this, they may have Literacy, Math’s and spelling homework depending on their age, as well as remembering to read at least 5 times a week. Every child will bring home a ‘My home learning’ sheet each week so parents can support their child with their tasks. There is also a weekly homework club, which provides children with the opportunity to complete their homework at lunchtime.

Over each holiday break, the children in Years 1, 2 and 3 are set a holiday home learning task. This will always be about the next topic the children are going to study and could range from an information report about Ancient Egypt to making a Victorian house. Each child will receive a holiday home learning project sheet, which will contain all the information they need to know. This allows all children to come in to school after a holiday break, with some information to share and excitement about the half term’s learning ahead. 

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