Home Learning


Home Learning is an important part of our school week as it helps to esure a seamless link between the learning the children do within the school day and the home learning that is suported by parents at home.

Hope learning is set each week in class on a Thursday and will include:

- Daily reading of the child's reading book

- Practice on Times Table Rockstar (Year 2 +) or Numbots (Year 1 plus EYFS when the children are ready) at least 3 times a week

-  Daily practice of weekly spellings (these will be printed on homework sheets) 

- Completion of weekly arithmeitc questions which mirror those practised in class that week 

Full details of our approach to Home Learning, or Remote Learning as it is sometimes known, can be found in our Remote Learning Policy on the Policies page. When required, provision for all children is provided via Google Classroom. You child's class teacher will provide you with log-in details to use and your child will be able to participate in a 3-4 hours of education per day.

If you have any questions or problems in accessing Google Classroom, please let the school know.
