Our Homelearning topics provide an excellent opportunity our children to demonstrate their creativity and confidence with learning. Our children take care in presenting their Homelearning and are proud of the books that they create.

Children’s thoughts about Homelearning include: ‘You get to display it how you like.’ ‘It’s fun.’ ‘You find out new things.’ You get to use your imagination.’

Parents also say: ‘We love it!’ ‘Wish my homework had been like this.’ ‘Encourages independent thinking and researching.’

Staff are committed to supporting Homelearning through providing a weekly lunchtime Homelearning club to help children with making a start with their homelearning.

Children across the school are also encouraged to join Mathletics which helps to support the development of maths skills. Please ask your child’s teacher to find out more.
