Learning in Class Five 

Home Link Diaries

These diaries are given for the school year.  Although some older children like to record their own reading in their diary, we do encourage parents and carers to listen to children read at home, and to record their thoughts on how they feel their child is progressing. Any reading can be recorded in them, and they provide the opportunity for weekly dialogue between home and school.

Homework

Homework is set almost every day, from Monday to Thursday. Typically, it might involve: learning spellings and incorporating words into sentences to put them into context; mathematical tasks, including learning and revising multiplication tables or solving ‘real life’ problems; extended reading activities. We encourage children to keep a record of any homework set, in their Homelink Diary, in order that parents/carers can keep track of tasks.

Independent Learning Logs

Children are set tasks to complete in their Independent Learning Logs, generally two or three times per half term. They are given an extended period of time to complete these tasks, which often involve an element of research. Of course, if it is not possible, for whatever reason, to carry out research at home, then ample opportunity is provided in school for children to do so. Some children enjoy the challenge of completing these tasks independently, whilst others appreciate help and support from home. We like to share the wonderful work children produce in these logs.
