Home Learning

Each week your child will be given a learning activity to complete at home. This will help to reinforce the learning they have been doing in school and will be used as evidence in their learning journey.

Children share some of their Makaton learning with their families during concerts and performances. Therefore, we also send home a weekly Makaton sign along with the Home Learning so that children and Parents/Carers can learn together at home.

Please support your child to read with you at home at least three times a week. Phonics Knowledge Organisers are sent home every term to support your child’s reading and understanding of reading. They include useful information relating to the sounds your child is learning, the high frequency words they need to practice and useful tips and tricks for Parents/Carers.

In the Early Years setting, we encourage Parents/Carers to contribute to their child’s Learning Journey. To do this, we encourage Parents and Carers to add WOW moments to their child’s online learning journey, via Tapestry.  WOW moments indicate when their child achieves something at home. An achievement could be tying their shoe for the first time, writing their name independently, baking a cake or anything else the parent believes to be a WOW moment. Afterwards it is included in the child’s learning journey and celebrated with their peers in the classroom.

We also give rewards for good behaviour; this could range from stickers to the Headteacher’s Award. In the Nursery, Key Workers complete ‘Proud Clouds’ for when the children meet special milestones or achieve something to be really proud of; these are then shared with Parents/Carers in addition to the WOW moments above.
