Home Learning describes work which is set to be completed outside the school timetable and represents an extension of the learning activities provided and organised through the school curriculum.
Learning at home is an essential part of good education. At BSCS we believe that Home Learning is important. It is a direct way of more closely involving you in your child’s education and gives pupils the opportunity to practise at home the tasks done in class. It also helps children to become confident and independent in their learning, which will help throughout their time at school, and in adult life.
Home learning has greater success when pupils and parents value it. We believe that it is important that children bring “work” home from a fairly young age so that links between home and school can be developed and enhanced.
Home Learning can:
- Directly involve parents in children’s learning
- Foster a productive home-school partnership
- Develop a positive attitude to learning as a life skill rather than just a school-based skill
- Allow children additional time to complete tasks or practise skills learned at school
- Utilise materials not available in the classroom
- Allow older children the opportunity for independent study and research
Home Learning will include the following elements:-
- Learning tables and spellings
- Regular reading.
- Home learning JIGSAW.
