Home learning at BBV



 The aims of home learning are:

  • To support academic progress and achievement
  • To practise, revise, reinforce and consolidate skills, concepts and knowledge previously learnt in school
  • To prepare for future lessons and upcoming topics
  • To extend class learning
  • To connect learning in school to the real world
  • To provide a valuable opportunity for pupils to share their learning and for parents to gain an insight and take an active role in their child’s education
  • To develop a range of life- long learning skills: Managing time and resources; working independently; taking responsibility; and fostering organisational skills

To prepare pupils as they transfer from Key Stage 1 to Key Stage 2 to Secondary School

  • Home learning tasks will be set on a Friday to be completed by the following Thursday. If a pupil needs additional time then they or their parent should discuss this with the class teacher
  • Home learning tasks will be set via Teams (Y1 – 6) or Tapestry (YR)
  • When an additional extended project is set, the pupils will be given a longer period of time to complete (1 – 3 weeks depending on the task)
  • Reading records will be handed in every week to be checked by the class teacher/TA
  • Home learning tasks set will link to expected outcomes
  • Feedback to home learning will be in line with the school policy. Feedback from the teacher will be given on an individual, group or whole class basis, and be given in writing or verbally
  • Apart from reading, home learning is not set for the school holidays. However, Year 6 might be set home learning tasks at February half- term and during the Easter holidays in preparation for end of Key Stage SATs and to support their transition to secondary school
