Home learning at Roundthorn is very exciting. We endeavour to give our children an opportunity to share their learning with families at home and extend their thinking. We are giving our children the opportunity to present their home learning in a variety of different ways. The children receive a menu of activities under their current topic and choose from these each week throughout the half term. The activities span all areas of the curriculum and give the children a chance to take ownership of their learning.
We are encouraging the children to use their speaking and listening skills, be creative, think analytically, problem solve and promote an independence in learning. Extended research shows that this is the most effective way for primary aged children to extend their thinking and get the most from home learning.
We look forward to seeing your home learning!
