Home Learning

We believe that children's learning should extend beyond the classroom. 

Our Home Learning aims to:

  • consolidate, reinforce and extend skills and understanding
  • provide opportunities for parents and children to work together
  • allow parents to gain an understanding of what children are learning in school
  • allow children to progress towards becoming more independent learners.
