We expect children to reinforce and extend the learning they are doing in the Academy at home. To this end, we set regular home learning tasks. The amount of time children are expected to spend on formal learning at home increases as they go through the Academy. Children are expected to read, learn spellings and times tables daily. In addition, they are given tasks to reinforce current topics at the Academy including in maths and English. These may be extended tasks over a period of time. Children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 have a reading diary, which can be used to promote communication between home and the Academy. Please write down anything you wish the teacher to know about their learning in your child’s diary.
