One of the ways we ask parents to be involved in their child's learning is through the completion of home learning tasks. These include:
Parents are asked to listen to their child read at home for 10 minutes each day. Home reading books which are closely matched to your child's reading ability. Your child will be sent home with three home reading books each week and will also be provided with access to 'Oxford Reading Buddy' (ORB) where they can select additional books to read should you feel they require more. Class teachers will indicate in your child's reading journal any specific reading skills your child is currently learning in class which would be beneficial for them to further practice at home.
Children are provided with a maths learning journal at the start of each school year. Class teachers will inform parents each week of which activity they would like you to support your child with at home. The activities relate directly to the maths learning your child has experienced in class that week.
Children in Years 1 and 2 are provided with a spelling journal into which class teachers will record specific words your child should practice at home. These spellings will reinforce spelling patterns they have been learning during phonics and English skills lessons.
