Home Learning

At Laycock Primary, we believe Home Learning allows for regular practice and revision of basic skills understanding in numeracy, literacy and other curriculum areas, helps raise achievement and provides opportunities for parents and children to work together

We recognise that there needs to be a balance between family time and hope that our policy reflects a balance.

To ensure consistency across the school, all teachers follow the Home Learning Policy.

Home Learning:

Home Learning is about making learning part of your home life. We will use home learning opportunities to find out what the children know before and after a teaching sequence. We will reward those who do their home learning. If a child is not doing their homework over time we will inform the parents/carers and support where possible.

Giving children the opportunity to talk about their learning is so important. Ask them questions. (What, Why, When, Which and How) and challenge them to explain.
