Home-learning is set across the whole school in the form of: reading, spelling and maths - see the RD Home Learning Hand below.
Times Table Rock Stars is an online learning platform, where learning opportunities will be set weekly by the Class Teacher. Children have weekly spellings to practice at home in books.
Each class will also have optional projects to complete; this will complement learning within topic lessons.
In Upper Key Stage 2, home-learning will increase and will vary in order to prepare the children for home-learning in Secondary school.
In Year 6 the home learning task was to make a World War 2 shelter, with the option of also researching different ways in which people protected themselves during air raids. We saw a wide range of impressive designs; some complete with real soil, lifting roofs and bunk beds! Some children accompanied their projects with impressive PowerPoint presentations and it was obvious that everybody had put in a great amount of effort. Well done to everyone who produced a project - what a great way to end our World War 2 topic!
