As well as suggested weekly spelling activities and regular home reading, we set Home Learning Challenges that support our cross-curricular topic work each term. The Home Learning Challenges allow the children to follow their own interests and become more independent learners.
An activities sheet which gives a range of possible tasks for the children to complete each term will be inside the Home Learning Challenges book. These activities are linked to the class topic and will also include some maths focused activities. The children can choose to do the activities, they wish, with guidance on the minimum number of tasks to complete. Completed activities should be brought into school towards the end of each term when all learning will be celebrated and will be shared with the class. The children can earn challenge merits for their home learning challenges..
The activities sheet indicates the maximum number of merits that will be awarded for each completed task.
We have seen a fantastic standard of work produced by the children and super participation between children and parents, learning together. We will offer an opportunity at least once a year for parents to come in and share their own child's HLC work as well as having the opportunity to look at the work of pupils in other classes.
Many thanks for your continuing support.
