Home Learning

We would strongly encourage all children to do any written task or learning challenges in a quiet environment; however we do not want this time to be stressful. Should you have any concerns, please contact your child's teacher.

General principles for home learning to be successful

  • All children will be set home learning tasks, as outlined in the school policy and brochure.
  • This will involve a whole range of activities and tasks and won't always require formal written tasks, we may ask children to research something or talk to adults (this is known as 'talk homework').
  • Parent/carers will be notified when children continually choose not to complete tasks.
  • Children should write their home learning tasks in their home-school diary. This diary is also an important means for parents/carers and teachers to communicate with each other.

Below are some links, organised by subject, that children can use to further their learning at home.

"This year we have introduced some new workshops to explore what 'Anti Bullying week' means to us a School. We looked at how random acts of kindness can bring a smile to peoples faces and how important it is to recognise our strengths and all the things that make us unique and awesome!
