At Crown Lane, we are slightly changing the way we do our home learning. The aim of our home learning is to support the children in their learning at school by learning and practising English and Maths key facts at home.
The children can also use the Crown Lane Superpowers to support them:
- Critical thinking
- Risk taking
The home learning for Years 1 to 6 will be in the following format:
Every term, all children will be sent home with a grid of 9 activities. They can choose a different one to complete each week
Five of the activities are the same for the whole school. These are to encourage children to complete them with friends or family and may include activities such as go for an autumnal walk.
Four of them will be linked to the topics being studied in school that term - they may be linked to Science, History, Geography, DT, Art or one of the other foundation subjects. These will be different for each year group and will enhance and support their learning at school.
Children will be given home learning based on their learning in school that week. This will be a way of consolidating what they have learnt.
In addition to this, it is important that children practise their times tables at home regularly. There are some websites they can use to help:
Children will continue to take Reading books home, with the opportunity to change them weekly (some of the children on higher levels and longer books may need to borrow them for longer). Children will also have different spellings to learn. They will have 5 spellings (for Years 1-3) or 10 spellings (for Years 4-6) to learn each week, which they will then be tested on at school and given opportunities to apply in their writing. These spellings will come from the statutory spelling lists for their year group.
Please ask your child's class teacher if you have any questions about the home learning.
