Learning at Home
We believe that homework plays a vital role not only in the advancement of pupils’ knowledge and skills but also in reinforcing the partnership between school and home. We value the opportunity for children to share their learning experiences with their parents and similarly for parents to support their child’s intellectual development.
The home learning grids (below) are designed to ensure children and parents can have fun together while learning at home. The grids are sent out at the beginning of each term and families can choose which activity they complete each week. We call these PIP (Parents in Partnership) grids.
In addition to these, children in Years 1 and 2 have weekly spellings sent home and in Year R they will have phonics and high frequency words to practise. We also advise that children read with an adult every night. Year 2 children may also have an additional maths activity sent home.
At the end of each term, parents are invited into school to share the Parents in Partnership(PIP) home learning.
