Home learning is a valuable element of children’s education at Wellington. All children receive regular tasks and activities to support their learning in reading, writing and maths. Children complete tasks in homework books which are similar to their class books.
All children are encouraged to read every day through regular reading books selected by teachers to extend their reading skills. In Key stage 1, children take home a reading book each week with a question to develop their understanding. In addition to this, children receive 10 personalised spellings for the week.
As children move into Key Stage 2, they receive a reading book and follow on task to deepen their understanding. They use their homework diaries to record tasks and homework set. All children receive 10 spellings to learn for the week.
All children also take home a library book of their choice to promote their love of reading and ensure a wide range of texts is read. We will also provide children with access to e-books on www.bugclub.org Pupils use an individual password to read the books assigned to them and complete follow up questions.
Written literacy and maths homework is set in class during lessons to support deeper understanding of work in class or to prepare for work in forthcoming lessons.
Children from year 2 to year 6 also have access to directed and independent maths activities on www.mymaths.co.uk This resources allows children to review their learning and complete homework activities.
