One of our ongoing priorities is to consult with pupils, staff and parents on the nature of our home learning programme and the emphasis we place on this. Current research shows that homework is only of benefit to children when it provides opportunities for parents/ carers and children to sit down and spend time talking about and sharing learning. Maidenhill’s home learning activities will be centred around play, communication and interaction, health and wellbeing, literacy and numeracy. This will be one of the ways that your child will connect their learning at home with their learning at school.
Your child’s home learning will be shared through the Google Classroom platform which is accessed through Glow. Each child has their own username and glow password which is created for them when they join us and will be shared with your child during the first few days of school. We appreciate that logging in to Glow with young children can be laborious, but would always aim to encourage as much independence as possible. Please view our Home learning Guidance for Parents and Carers to help you.
In the event of a school closure, or if you are looking for inspiration for things to do over the holidays, please view our Maidenhill’s Top Tips for School Closures Booklet .
If you have any further questions at this stage, please contact the school via e-mail.
