From year 1 onwards your child will have a ‘Learning Log’. In their ‘Learning Log’ they will be expected to extend the learning they have undertaken that week by practicing skills or researching to gain more knowledge. Class teachers put an outline of the weekly learning in the log and children make a choice on what they wish to do. Parental support is vital especially with the younger children. In KS2 this may be extended by the use of specific learning activities ie ‘Medal Maths’, Mathletics etc.
As stated before it is important that you hear your child read every day or, in the case of the younger children, share a book. Another important aspect of ‘homework’ is reading to your child –even the older children enjoy a story.
