Learning is not something that only takes place in school and there are many opportunities within our homes, local communities and the wider world for children to have valuable experiences, which enhance and enrich their lives. A review of homework was undertaken last session and included staff, children and parents. As a result of this, we are currently piloting new approaches this session and moving towards a home learning programme.
At the beginning of each term, class teachers will provide a newsletter to inform parents/carers of the intended learning for the term. Parents/Carers will also be provided with a grid that details a range of possible activities families may wish to engage on. . A suggested list of websites will also be provided. None of these activities are compulsory and there is no requirement for children to bring them into school. Teachers will provide certain homework tasks that children do need to prepare each week to support their learning.
