The Home Learning Projects have been designed with the following principles:
Each weekly project has daily maths, reading, writing, phonics/spelling, handwriting activities.
Each Home Learning Project is based around a theme – this remains constant regardless of the age range (although activities will differ dependent on age) to ensure that parents with multiple primary school children have only one theme to consider. This also provides the opportunity for learning collaboration amongst siblings at home.
Each Home Learning Project has a balance between learning that does not rely on technology and learning that utilises the internet.
The aims of the Learning Projects are:
To create age specific learning opportunities for our children.
To create a resource for parents that is easy to access and use – the focus is on parents being able to help deliver the content or children accessing it independently.
Key learning is linked to the National Curriculum.
To enable children to continue with their learning at home during an enforced shutdown.
To enable families to focus on a joint topic and theme to promote family wide learning.
To provide structure and focus to each day that an enforced shutdown occurs.
