At The Bemrose Primary phase we have put in place a new Home Learning programme of study for all the children from EYFS to Year 6. We believe that home learning is an important part of children’s development and the tasks that they will be set are a consolidation of the work that they will be doing in school. The children in EYFS will have a focus on fine motor skill development and the children in KS1 and KS2 will be set an English and Maths task per week using the new digital platforms that we have introduced. The new digital platforms are Century, which will be used by our children in KS2 and Purple Mash for our KS1 children. We are embracing technology to help prepare our children for a digitally rich world.
Your child or children, regardless of their age, are expected to read at least 3 times a week. Reading is held in such high regard in our school and will remain the main focus for our children.
We have also introduced Knowledge Organisers this year, these will have key information for the topic that your child will be studying in their year group. The Knowledge Organisers will also have some tasks on them that we are encouraging children to complete. These are not compulsory but are activities that will engaged other subjects that the children may enjoy, such as; Art, Music, History, RE or Science. Each Knowledge Organiser task completed by your child will be shared in their class and awarded 5 dojos. Please click on the individual Home Learning sections below to find your child’s half termly year group Knowledge Organiser.
Educational research indicates that Home Learning can have a high impact on a child’s learning and we strongly agree in strengthening the bond between school and home when it comes to our children’s education.Home Learning Booklet
