Home Learning

At Manor Primary School we believe that home-learning is an important link in the working partnership between children, parents and staff. Worthwhile tasks that are completed at home enable children to appreciate the help and support of their families in thinking together“and enables parents to help and be involved in their children’s education.

It also has an important role to play in reinforcing and extending the learning and teaching that has taken place in the classroom.

 

Home Learning in EYFS

Home Learning in EYFS takes the form of suggested tasks set by the teaching team. These tasks are centred around developing children’s independence as well as other key skills to support them in school. Reading to your child every single day is incredibly beneficial. 

 

Home Learning in Key Stages 1 & 2

Most of the home learning that takes place is online. One of the key reasons for this is that the online resources we provide children allow them to receive immediate feedback. In addition, the use of Google Classroom and Google tools allow home learning to be collaborative and builds on our use of technology in school. Where children do not have access at home, children are provided with alternative provision which may include paper copies of the task, arrangements made to complete home learning tasks at school or through loaning children a device to use at home.

Reading at Home

At Manor, we believe that every child should have access to good quality texts that stimulate and inspire children (and adults) to read for pleasure. At school, we promote reading through engaging whole-class reading lessons and in September 2016, we extended our school day so that we could spend time reading a class novel or to Drop Everything and Read (DEAR) to foster a life-long love of reading.

We strongly encourage daily reading at home. Children take books home regularly from either the school library hubs or classroom reading areas. We also subscribe to Bug Club which provides all children with access to quality texts online.

These links below show high quality texts which promise to engage and challenge even the most reluctant of readers! It is important that children are encouraged and supported with their reading and are choosing books that are age appropriate.  These books can be obtained from good book shops or one of Newham’s library. Manor is closely linked with Newham Libraries so if you have any questions, please let us know. Please note that some of these texts are encouraged to be read together, discussing themes and content. The year group specified is a rough indication, some children may enjoy exploring texts from a year group above or indeed below the specified age group.
