Home Learning refers to any learning or activities which the children are asked to do outside lesson time. Children are encouraged to continue their learning at home in a variety of ways, including taking reading books home, learning spelling lists and learning their tables. We expect that all children will attempt the home learning set and expect it to be handed in on time. Staff are always happy to meet with parents to discuss the best ways to support children’s learning at home.
At St Matthew’s we follow a whole school approach to home learning in the form of Learning Logs. Learning Logs are a fun way for our children to demonstrate their understanding of class work whilst practising skills and helping them to remember work which has been taught in school.
Every child from Nursery to Year 6 has their own Learning Log which is taken home to work in and to share with parents or carers. The tasks in the Learning Log are explained in school and compliment learning which has taken place in school. The children are encouraged to record their learning creatively and imaginatively in their Learning Logs.
