We use the dbprimary learning platform to set and upload homework - click on the image above to login.
At the Rissington School, we feel that the activities that we send home for children to do should be meaningful, to add to their learning, and for children and parents to value these. The term ‘Homework’ often has negative connotations, and so by calling it ‘home learning’ we want to raise its profile as an important element of learning.
Home Learning involves ongoing, daily learning activities like reading and practising spellings or phonics, as well as set tasks. It can cover all curriculum subjects; however the focus is often on Reading, Writing and Maths, especially developing and embedding key skills.
Ongoing, daily learning activities include:
- Reading with parents or carers every day (or discussing what has been read for fluent readers in KS2); recording this in Reading Records
- Practising phonics and spellings (written lists and oral practise)
- Practising times tables and number facts (written tasks and oral practise)
- Sharing what happened during the school day and what children learnt.
Specific tasks are related to the work children are doing at school and may include:
- Games, activities or worksheets to practice literacy, maths or other skills
- Preparing a presentation to the class
- Finding out information
- Designing or making something
- Solving problems
- Completing literacy, maths or other work
