After discussions with children, staff and parents, we have reviewed the amount and format of our home learning for 2018-19. We want learning at Whitefield to be purposeful and consolidate learning from school. We hope our approach to home learning makes learning meaningful.
Many parents have requested a set Home Learning task, rather than the more creative approach we tried last year in KS1, hence below highlights what children will be given for this academic year;
Every week, children in KS1 will be given;
daily reading books
weekly maths Home Learning
weekly phonics Home Learning (games to consolidate weekly sounds)
Poetry Book (a poem or rhyme to learn that the whole class will perform during the half term)
Every week, children in EYFS will be given;
daily reading books and 'Humpty Words'
A Creative weekly maths challenge
