At Fleet we aim to utilise Home Learning in order to embed and secure key skills that we feel need constant practise and ‘over learning’. The children from Y2 upwards have a Home Learning journal in which mental maths objectives and spelling patterns are outlined weekly and fortnightly respectively for the children to practise with their grown-ups at home.
We have presented and discussed a range of games and activities with parents and carers as well as the children in order to provide the children with meaningful ways in which to embed their learning in a way that suits them.
In addition, the children all have reading diaries in which a dialogue between parents/carers, children and teachers can take place, in addition to activities to support reading comprehension.
Once a term the children from Y2 upwards are given a topic based project to complete over three weeks. This enables the children to build on their interests in a creative way.
