After much research, we believe that the best use of home learning time for primary age children is developing reading and practising key number facts in maths.
Children in year 6 will also carry out revision of the curriculum, as home work, in preparation for the end of Key Stage 2 SATs tests. This is explained to parents and resources are provided in a meeting.
Children who read regularly at home at are a distinct advantage.
At Huntingtree Primary School, we encourage home reading through our provision of two home reading books - which are changed at least once a week (depending on length of book, etc)
For further details about reading, please follow the link to our Curriculum - English - Reading section:
At key points in the year, parents are given resources that support their child with the types of questions where assessments have shown to be weaknesses. Below is a copy of the comprehension bookmarks and the maths basic skills sheets that have been used.
